Lentil & Root Vegetable Soup with Tofu Croutons
Marinate the tofu croutons in the tamari and put to one side. They need to marinate for about 30 minutes. Turn occasionally.
Place the the prepared root vegetables, lentils, dried herbs and stock into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer for approximately 25 – 30 mins or until the lentils and veg are soft.
When the soup is almost ready, puree in a blender or food processor.
Meanwhile, heat the toasted sesame oil in a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and the tofu croutons and stir-fry for about 5 minutes, turning at least once. Cook until brown all over.
Serve the soup in warm bowls with the tofu croutons on top.
