How To Make Carrot And Lentil Soup

Preparing The Ingredients

There isn’t much preparation needed for this soup. I don’t bother peeling the carrots; I just wash them and cut the ends off.

There is also no need to do much to prepare the red lentils; there is no need to soak them beforehand, like with other lentils. I just give them a good rinse with water, as per the instructions on the packet.

Making It In A Soup Maker

I have made this particular soup in a Morphy Richards Soup Maker (like this one) and the latest Ninja Soup Maker (check out my review of it here).

This soup does come out very thick, which was my intention; I wanted something filling, but if you prefer a thinner consistency, you will want to reduce the amount of lentils from 200g to around 150g.

You can optionally sauté the onion; this makes more sense if you have a soup maker with this function. Otherwise, just pop all the ingredients into the soup maker and top it up to the minimum or maximum level with stock.

Set the soup maker off on smooth. At the end of the programme, taste the soup and add some seasoning if and as required (I stirred in some chilli flakes, but you can add what you like or just leave it as it is).

Can I Make This Soup In A Saucepan?

You can follow the same recipe as for the soup maker. Once the soup has come to a boil, reduce the heat so that the soup simmers for around 20 minutes. Then, blend it up with a hand blender or mash for a more textured consistency.

Carrot and lentil soup is deliciously satisifying as well as quick and easy to make.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 300g carrots, chopped
  • 200g red lentils, rinsed
  • 1 vegetable stock pot/cube (& water)


  1. Add all the ingredients to your soup maker jug.
  2. Add the stock cube or pot directly to the soup maker and add water (I use hot) up to the maximum line.
  3. Set the soup maker off on smooth.
  4. Season soup according to taste.


This produces a very thick soup. If you prefer a thinner consistency reduce the amount of lentils and increase the stock level.

Loving your soup recipes. A friend gave me a Tower soup maker for Christmas, something I've never ever considered buying even though I regularly make soup. It really does make it so quick and easy. The carrot and lentil soup is delicious, thick and filling for a main meal. I shall be working my way through your recipes and not just sticking to my usual ones.
