I know that looks like a lot of steps, but I promise you it’s super simple! It’s definitely worth it for the end result – this carrot parsnip and sweet potato soup is a definite winner.

The red lentils help bulk the soup out which makes it filling enough for lunch and dinner, although I would never say no to some crusty bread on the side of course! It freezes really well too, so I popped a couple of serves in the freezer for the cold nights ahead. I can be so bad at eating lunch at home on weekends if I don’t plan ahead, so my freezer stash is definitely going to come in handy!
