Ham, Potato & Lentil Soup

This combination is called London Particular, it's really delicious. I used red lentils for this recipe.

Recipe By: yhiranuma (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/34)
Serves 4 Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Onion (sliced) 1/2-1
Celery (sliced) 1
Garlic (finely chopped) 1 clove
Red lentils 1/3 cup
Potato (small) 2
Chicken stock 700-1000ml
Ham (diced) 200g
Your favourite green vegetables as required
Creme fraiche 1 tbsp
Salt & pepper as required
Olive oil as required

Method

1
Put the oil in a pan and fry the onion and celery until soft. Then add the garlic.
2
When softened, add the diced potato.
3
Wash the red lentils, and drain before adding to the pan. They could stick, so stir occasionally.
4
Add the stock and bring to the boil.
5
Keep boiling. If the potato dice are about 1.5cm dice, they should cook at the same rate as the lentils.
6
When the potato is soft, mash if you like. This will make the soup thicker.
7
Add the ham and your favourite green vegetables - I used gem lettuce and green beans, and cook until softened.
8
Add creme fraiche and stir in. Season with salt & pepper before serving.

Tips & Note

After boiling at Step 5, turn the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Crush the potatoes against the side of the pan - avoid mashing to the bottom of the pan to avoid any hot splashes.
