One sure way to get my son to eat vegetables is to hide them in a soup. This delicious and warming soup uses up a load of surplus vegetables and combines them with a little chicken and some lentils to make the perfect after school meal.

Prep Time


  1. Add the oil to a large pot over medium/high heat. Bring a large kettle of water to the boil.

  2. Stir in the red onion and cook for 3-4 minutes before adding the chicken, garlic and ginger. Cook the chicken for a further 3 – 4 minutes and then add all the remaining ingredients. Pour the boiled water into the pot until all the vegetables are covered. Cover the pot and bring the soup to a boil. This will take around 4 – 5 minutes

  3. Then turn the heat to low and simmer covered for a further 25 – 30 minutes. Allow the soup to cool to room temperature and then ladle into a blender in batches and blend till combined.
