  • 3 carrots
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • A splash of rapeseed oil for frying
  • 7 dl of water
  • 1 bouillon cube
  • 400 g crushed tomatoes
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 2 dl red lentils
  • 2 dl Philadelphia Original

Do this:

  1. Peel and slice the carrots. Chop the garlic. Fry the carrots and garlic in a pan with oil for a few minutes.
  2. Add water, stock cube, crushed tomatoes, salt and black pepper. Simmer, covered, until the carrots are almost completely soft, about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the lentils and cook for another 10 minutes until both the lentils and carrots are soft.
  4. Stir in the Philadelphia and blend the soup until smooth. Add more water if the soup becomes too thick and feel free to season with Norwegian Gastromat if you have it.
  5. Fry pumpkin seeds for a few minutes in a frying pan with olive oil and flake salt until they get a crispy surface.
  6. Pour the soup into a bowl, drizzle over some lemon juice and serve with pumpkin seeds.
