Detox balance soup

This soup is a little treasure, it's packed with nutrients from the veggies as well as the lentils and if that wasn't enough it's topped with kale and parsley. Why cheese? Detox is boring without balance !!

Kids approved it so I am over the moon ๐ŸŒ™









you will need or I should say I used:

1 big onion, diced
half a leek 
1 parsnip
2 potatoes
1 large carrot
about 350 gr butternut squash, peeled and diced
1 cup green lentils
1/2 cup red lentils
2 handful of kale
1 handful of chopped parsley 
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1.6 l water or 6 - 7 cup
parmesan shavings ( optional )


Method:

Place all vegetables into a large cooking pot, add 1Tbsp oil.
Sweat the veggies for five minutes, add the lentils and boiling water.
Cook the soup for 40 minutes or until the green lentils are soft, the veggies and the red lentils will be cooked quicker.
Add the salt.
Take four cups of the soup and blend it together with the olive oil until smooth.
Pour back into the pot and add the kale as well as the parsley.
Serve the soup with parmesan shavings and crusty bread 
Serve 8 people 
Enjoy :)
