  • 3cm - Cinnamon stick
  • 4 - Cardamon pods

  • 500ml - Vegetable stock
  • 400g - Tin chopped tomatoes
  • 400g - Tin coconut milk
  • 100g - Natural Yoghurt

Full preparation

  1. Peel the carrots, sweet potato, garlic cloves, apples and onion. Ask an adult to dice this for you and discard the apple cores. Peel the fresh ginger using a teaspoon and grate it into a small bowl.
  2. When all the vegetables have been chopped ask an adult to supervise you while you melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion, carrots and sweet potato and cook over a gentle heat, stirring occasionally until the onion has softened.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger and apples and sauté for 2-3 minutes then add the curry powder and spices, stir to coat the vegetables well.
  4. Add the lentils, stock and tomatoes and bring the soup to the boil. Add more stock if the soup seems very thick. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered for 30 minutes.
  5. Ask an adult to supervise you while you remove the cinnamon stick and cardamom pods. They tend to float to the top so are pretty easy to find. Puree the soup with a stick blender or liquidiser leaving some chunky if you prefer.
  6. Stir in the coconut milk, adjust seasoning and serve with a dollop of yogurt.
