500g potatoes, clean & cut into rough pieces

2 medium carrots, peeled & sliced

2 sticks of celery (optional)

Add the oil to a large deep pan, gently heat. Now add the onion, leek and potatoes and sauté for 5 minutes, until the leeks and onions soften.

Pour in the vegetable stock and add the split yellow lentils, celery, and carrots. Add a good pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Lower the heat and then simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes, until the lentils are soft and the potatoes can be speared with a fork.

Then remove one or two ladlesful of vegetables and place in a bowl to one side. Now using a handheld stick blender, blend the soup in the pan until it is smooth and creamy. Return the retained vegetables to the soup, stir through and add the frozen vegetables and return to heat until the frozen vegetables are cooked through.
