Mulligatawny Soup made from Leftover Chilli Con Carne

Nice and quick, nice and comforting, nice and easy, nice and warming, nice and healthy. What more can you want on a miserable day? 


Serves 2
Syn Free on Extra Easy

1 cup leftover chilli con carne (syn free of course)
½ cup red lentils
2 onions
2 stems celery
2 tsp bouillon powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
½ tsp ground turmeric
½ cup cooked carrots, chopped
a few drops food colouring
a small handful chopped coriander leaves
1 red chilli (optional), finely chopped

Finely chop the onion and celery and onions and sauté in Fry Light until soft. Add the lentils and bouillon powder and enough water to make it a soup consistency. Boil rapidly for ten minutes. Turn the heat down, add the leftover chilli con carne and spices and simmer for another 15-20 minutes until everything is cooked through and the lentils are soft and mushy. Add the carrots and fresh coriander and heat through. Add a few drops of food colouring if the soup looks a little insipid. Serve topped with some chopped coriander.
