Curried Roasted Carrot Parsnip and Lentil Soup makes great use of leftovers from your roast dinner. My Paprika Roast Carrots and Parsnips will form the basis of the soup and the lentils will add some filling protein to the mix. The flavours from the Roast Carrots and Parsnips will have already had time to strengthen from when you cooked them, so that’s a lot of the work done for you!
Do red lentils need to be rinsed before cooking?
No. They don’t need to be rinsed, but it may remove any dust from them, if you like your lentils super clean.
Can I refrigerate my soup, once cooked?
Yes. Cool the lentil soup before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. It should be fine for a couple of days. Heat thoroughly in a pan.
Can I freeze my soup, once cooked?
Yes. Cool before storing in an airtight container in the freezer. Store it in portion sizes you are likely to need. Heat thoroughly in a pan from frozen, or defrost in the fridge before heating in a pan.
