Italian lentil soup

There are many good recipes on Kung Markatta’s homepage! Here is my version of their Italian lenticchie soup. It’s a very rich soup with delicious flavors of root vegetables, mushrooms and herbs!

Serves 6

3 dl dried green lentils
1 carrot, sliced
1 parsnips, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
250 g champignons, sliced
1 onion, coarsely chopped
1 leek, sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
500 g crushed tomatoes
7 dl water
2 tbsp thyme
2 tsp herb salt
1.5 tsp ground black pepper
1 handful bunch of parsley
Oil for frying
Grated Parmesan cheese and olive oil for serving

Heat oil in a pan and fry all the vegetables and onions for 5 minutes. But include the garlic only the last minute. Add lentils, chopped tomatoes and water and boil for about 25-30 minutes. Add parsley and blend the soup with a hand blender. Serve it with grated Parmesan cheese and olive oil curled over.
