Hey i make lentil soup with bacon!

I cut 4 carrots and onion and half a neep, and put it in a large soup pan with water, add four pork stock cubes and cut a packet of smoked bacon into pieces and add them to the pan, Then i add the lentils, i put about half a packet of lentils in my soup, then simmer it for hours. about 2 hours should do it!!

I buy a smoked bacon end from the butchers and boil it in cold water then simmer for about at hour.

Add onion, carrot & turnip (a prepared bag of diced from Tesco is only 50pence and the same weight of turnip alone would cost double that, so it`s economical as well as time saving)

I use 250gms lentils all together but add half with the veg, then the rest about half an hour later and cook for another half hour. This gives a more interesting texture.

Pinch of parsley if liked before serving.
