.Ham, Lentil & Vegetable Tomato Soup.

For a hearty, quick and tasty soup this is my usual go-to recipe.  It's ready to eat in 30 minutes and is one rare lentil meal that the rest of the family will happily eat.  

Ham, Lentil & Vegetable Tomato Soup
1 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
300g smoked ham, chopped (I get ham off the bone from my butcher cut into 1/2cm thick pieces)
2 cups chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can brown lentils, rinsed
1 can tomato soup

Heat oil in large saucepan over high heat. Add onion, garlic, celery and carrot. Cook, and stir for 5 minutes or until softened.
Add ham, stock, tomato soup, tomatoes and lentils. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat.
Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
