    Lentil & Pancetta Soup

    A nice wintery easy cooked soup

    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon oil
      2 leeks, chopped
      8 slices pancetta, chopped
      400 gr brown lentils
      6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
      extra pancetta
      cracked black pepper and sea salt
      lemon or creme fraiche

    Method

    1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the leeks and pancetta and cook for 3 minutes. Add the lentils and stock to the pan and bring to the boil. Allow the soup to boil rapidly for 15-18 minutes or until lentils are soft. While soup is cooking, place a few slices of pancetta under a hot grill and cook for 1 minute on each side or until crisp. To serve, season the soup with pepper and salt and laddle into bowls. Serve topped with the crisp pancetta and lemon wedges to be squeezed over the soup, or a spoonful of creme fraiche.
