Its not an original - I'm following a recipe from my favourite recipe book...
Firstly pull all the ingredients together...
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium onions finely chopped
275g lamb finely diced
1.2 litres beef stock
275 ml Guinness
3 sticks celery diced
3 carrots diced
50g pearl barley washed
110g red lentils washed
3 medium potatoes ( about 450g) peeled & diced
pinch of dried herbs / some fresh basil
Doesn't it all look scrummy?
Now for the doubters amongst you I shall illustrate how simple soup is to make by giving you directions by the medium of photography... minimal words allowed!
12. Simmer for...
17. simmer for...
19. Pot up for freezing to make lunches for next week back at work
or scoff straight away!
Bet you cant guess what I did next?
