Hearty Lentil and Vegie Soup

Easy, healthy, tasty and amazingly low in calories (just 150 calories per huge serve!), this is a great one to have on high rotation, especially as the weather cools down.

Nice to serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

olive oil spray
1 brown onion,diced
1 large carrot, peeled, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons tomato paste
400g can lentils, drained, rinsed
400g can diced tomatoes
2 cups vegetable stock
450g savoy cabbage, shredded

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and spray with oil.

Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened.  Add tomato paste.  Stir to coat.  Add lentils, tomatoes, stock, cabbage and 2 cups cold water.

Cover.  Simmer for 40 minutes or until cabbage is tender.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve.
