This soup is filling, healthy, simple and delicious! Add any herbs you like. I like to squeeze a slice of lemon over it.

In a very large saucepan heat oil and cook onion and celery on a medium heat until onion is translucent.
Add in lentils, tomatoes and stock.
Add more water if needed, should have liquid covering the lentils by at least an inch.
Bring to boil and then simmer on a low-medium heat for 30-45 mins or until lentils are soft.
