Recipe ~ Lentil & Foie gras soup

Just a quick recipe while we wait for some of our legends to reply to us (clearly they are still busy people, but it should be worth the wait). So this is one of our favorite soups, enjoy.

Lentil & Foie gras Soup

Cover the lentils with cold water and bring to the boil, drain and wash under cold water.

Put the lentils into a clean pan, add the 3 ½ L water and all the rest of the ingredients & cook until the lentils are soft. Leave to sit for 1 hour.

Remove some of the lentils for garnish.

Drain the juices, remove the bacon & bouquet garni, purée the lentils & veg with juices and pass through a conical strainer.
