Puy Lentil Soup with Rosemary Pull Apart Rolls


Well, I really just whipped up this soup so I had something to go with these stunning rolls, or rather, to stop myself eating a tray of freshly baked fluffy buns! That being said, it turned out really nice and is a soup I will certainly make again. Beautiful roll recipe post coming next ;-) ! *Edit - here it is!*

Puy Lentil Soup:
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 carrots, diced, about 130g
2 shallots diced, about 40g
2 small leeks, sliced, about 100g
2 smallish new potatoes diced, about 150g
4 cloves garlic, pureed
1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
1 litre vegetable stock, I made mine with 1 oxo cube
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
100g dry weight puy lentils, about 1/2 cup
1/2 tsp smoked sea salt, or to taste, can use regular salt
freshly ground black pepper
fresh parsley, chopped - optional

First give the lentils a good wash then place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and fast boil for 10 minutes. Drain, rinse and set aside.

Add the carrots and potatoes and fry on low heat for 5 minutes, add the garlic with 1 minute remaining and stir well. Add the stock, tomatoes, herbs and lentils stir well, cover and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the veg and lentils are soft. Stir in the smoked sea salt to taste and parsley if using.
