I'm not a big fan of soups, but mum has made me this since I was little and I've always loved it. I sucessfully made it today and thought I'd share :)

2 carrots
3 or so stalks celery and a few leaves
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 or 2 parsnips
2 small potatoes
quarter of a cup or so of chopped pumpkin
a sprig of parsley, chopped finely
about 1/2 cup of lentils
about 1/2 cup of soup grains mix
2 cubes vegatable stock
half teaspoon rosemary
tablespoon olive oil
8 cups water

Put lentils and soup grains in a bowl with water to soak.
Chop all vegies into bite-sized squares. Make pumkpin and potato squares a little larger so they don't crumble.
Put oil in large soup pan, add vegies on low heat. Stir and heat until vegies seem cooked and begin to stick to bottom. (about 15 min).Pic below
