For an easy, inexpensive, flavoursome soup this one takes some beating.
Those of you unfamiliar with miso, it is a fermented soy bean paste used to flavour soups and casseroles. Like yoghurt, miso boosts the digestive system with friendly bacteria to aid digestion and strengthen the immune system. It is available from health food stores and Asian grocer.

1 brown onion finely chopped
2 carrots finely chopped
2 stalks of celery finely chopped
2 cups red lentils, rinsed thoroughly
1/3 cup miso paste
7 cups water
1 tbsp olive oil

Sauté the onion, carrot and celery for 3 - 4 minutes until soft
Ad the lentils and water and gently simmer for 25 minutes.
Add the miso and heat for a further 4- 5 minutes without bringing the soup to the boil

Note: Boiling miso destroys the beneficial health properties of this fermented food.
