Welcome to my ultimate vegan lentil soup in the soup maker.
A lot of people will not know that I was a vegetarian as a child. I lived a meat free life from the age of 8 up until being about 15. I remember seeing a dead pig hanging down from the back of a butcher’s lorry and thinking it was the most awful thing in the world and that I no longer wanted to eat meat.
My only issue was that I was allergic to mushrooms and nuts’ meaning that eating out was a total nightmare. Just think of the vegetarian options on menus….I would see mushroom stroganoff or a nut roast as the food of choice. This would mean that I was often out eating either a jacket potato or chips and gravy.
I loved trips to the Indian restaurant because I would be in food heaven. We could have a mixed starter of different vegetables in tikka flavourings, followed by vegetable curry (made with lentils) and then it would be washed down with a Malibu & Coke.
But I always remember that to be able to get a mix in my diet when I was a vegetarian there would always be the need for lentils and I wanted to go back to my vegetarian roots with this delicious lentil soup in the soup maker. Or for those of you out there that are vegans you can enjoy this too as it is completely dairy free!

Welcome to my ultimate vegan lentil soup in the soup maker. A lot of people will not know that I was a vegetarian as a child.
You drain the moong dal beans after soaking them for an hour
Then add everything into your soup maker.
Put it on the smooth setting and set it to start.
After it has finished make sure all the ingredients and mixed well together.
Serve with some croutons.
If you prefer a creamier soup then I suggest that you add a medium sized potato or some butternut squash to the soup.
