Red Lentil Soup

Soup Maker

Cheap and healthy but very tasty too, what is there not to like. Everyone has their own lentil soup recipe so here is mine, it has been designed for my 1.6 litre Morphy Richard soup maker but could be scaled for a different sized machine or adapted for stove top very easily.

The soup is of medium thickness and can be adapted by adding or reducing the quantity of lentils and potatoes in equal amounts but go steady as a small change makes a big difference.




35 minutes (excluding soaking)

4 servings @ 240 calories


  • 1 x Onion

  • 1 tbsp Olive or Sunflower Oil

  • 200g Dried Red Lentils

  • 200g Potatoes

  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper

  • Water


  1. Soak the lentils in water for  an hour and then drain and rinse, I find it easiest to do this by  soaking the in a plastic sieve placed in a bowl of water. Best to cover  them in the summer to avoid and flying insects.

  2. Chop the onions roughly

  3. Chop the potatoes (no need to peel as long as they are well scrubbed)

  4. Sauté the onions in the oil if your machine has this function

  5. Add the ingredients to the soup maker

  6. Add water to the ‘Max’ mark

  7. Cook on ‘Smooth’
