1 large onion, 810g tomatoes, 125g red lentils, 2 cups salt free vegetable stock. Freshly ground pepper and fresh basil leaves to taste.
Peel & finely chop the onion. Simmer the onion until just softened in a little water. Add the tomatoes & break them up slightly. Rinse the lentils, drain & add to the tomatoes. Stir in stock, season with pepper. Bring to the boil, cover & simmer for 30 mins or until lentils are tender. Remove from heat & add torn basil leaves to soup. Blend until smooth. Return to the pan and heat through for a few minutes. Serve garnished with extra basil.
