One of the great things about living in Greenford is the increase in the number of Polish pork products that have appeared in the local shops as well as the local bakery now staying open until after I get home from work. This soup serves three and is great with a slice of crusty bread and cheese.
3 sticks of celery, trimmed and finely diced
2 carrots finely diced
1 medium onion finely diced
1 clove garlic finely chopped
Polish sausage sliced into bite sized chunks
Two or three large handfuls of green lentils
1 teaspoon Dried herbs (I used thyme and oregano)
1 litre or so of vegetable stock
1 large glug of olive oil
Salt an pepper
Fry the celery, onion, carrots and garlic in the oil until the onion is transparent. Add the sausage and fry for a few minutes then add the lentils and herbs. Stir to mix then add the stock and bring to the boil. Season to taste then simmer until the lentils are cooked.
