If you cook tomato soups, then you’ll love this one! If you haven’t, it’s high time you started, and this tomato & lentils soup is wonderful to start with!

I’m giving the tomato passata:stock ratio that I prefer, but you can make the soup more tomatoey by adding more passata and less stock.

I use tomato passata, which is basically tomato puree because it seems the most convenient option for soups. You can also use canned tomatoes, but it will result in a different, less smooth texture. And you’ll have to use twice as much as passata. Tomato juice also works fine, but you’ll also have to double the amount. Either option requires less stock so that the soup isn’t too watery.

In season, you’ll probably want to use puree from fresh tomatoes, or tomatoes alone.

The soup is thick with a slight sour-fresh taste of tomatoes which perfectly pairs with cream.

Enjoy!
