Beef and Lentil Soup

Original recipe

Beef and Lentil Soup


Spice Mix




  1. Mix spices in a small bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Cook onion and garlic for 3 minutes until golden on the edges.
  3. Turn heat up to high, add beef and cook until it's no longer red, breaking it up as you go. Add 2 tablespoons of the Spice Mix and cook it for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Add carrot and celery, then stir for 1 minute.
  5. Add water, beef stock, canned tomato, lentils and remaining Spice Mix too. Give it a stir, bring to simmer, then place lid on and reduce to medium low so it's simmering gently.
  6. Simmer 15 minutes then add zucchini & green beans.
  7. Simmer 10 minutes longer or until lentils are soft (ie. 25 minutes total).
  8. Serve! Taste and add more salt if desired. Ladle into bowls and serve with yogurt.
