Scottish Red Lentil Soup, so healthy with no added fat..[gluten free, diabetic friendly]

I crave this soup, even during the hot summers and make it almost every week.

It is so quick to prepare, no blender, no chopping and you end up with a satiny purée and a bit of texture – it is just divine.

My Scottish mother-in-law was not too fond of cooking but she made this soup when I went to her home for the very first time in Irvine and I loved it so much that she made it for me each time I visited. This is her recipe.

It has no added fats, is so healthy and wholesome and if you are craving comfort food try this for a healthy option. I have mine as it is but you can put one of those fresh mozzarella balls in the bottom of the bowl or a fresh Maltese gbejna before pouring the hot soup in serve it with the option of grated parmigiano reggiano. It is just delicious and gets rid of all those hunger pangs very quickly !
