Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Halve and peel the onion. Cut each half into three wedges.
  • Chop the tomato into thick wedges.
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
Roast the Veg
2
  • Add the pepper, onion, tomato and half the parsley to a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil. Season with salt, pepper and paprika.
  • Toss to coat well then spread out in a single layer.
  • Roast on the middle shelf of the oven until tender, 25-30 mins.
Bake the Breadsticks
3
  • Meanwhile, cut the baguettes into breadsticks 1-2cm wide.
  • Arrange on a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with a little oil if desired.
  • Place the breadsticks above the vegetables in the oven and bake until golden and crunchy, 10-14 mins.
Simmer the Lentils
4
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat with the passata, lentils and stock.
  • Bring to the boil then simmer for 18-20 mins. 
  • Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Once cooked, remove the veg from the oven and blend to a smooth paste.
  • Return the pot with the lentils to high heat.
  • Add the pureed veg along with 300ml water (double for 4p) and bring to the boil. 
  • Loosen the soup with a splash more water if you feel it's too thick. Stir through a knob of butter.
  • Season with salt, pepper and 1 tsp sugar (double for 4p).

TIP: Allow the veg to cool a little before blending.

Garnish and Serve
6
  • Divide the tomato and lentil soup between bowls.
  • Crumble the Greek style cheese over the top.
  • Garnish the soup with chilli flakes (use less if you don't like spice) and remaining parsley.
  • Serve with the golden breadsticks alongside.
