Soup Maker Ham and lentil Soup

This delicious soup is a perfect way of using up leftover ham. The lentils are packed with protein and fibre which makes the soup very filling. This recipe is for the soup maker but there is absolutely no reason why you couldn’t also do it in an ordinary sauce pan too.


You will need

  • A handful of red lentils, rinsed
  • A medium sized onion, peeled and finely diced
  • A clove of garlic (optional) peeled and crushed
  • A tin of chopped tomatoes
  • A shaking of herbs du provence
  • 2 chicken stock cubes or chicken stockpots
  • Enough water to top up to the maximum line
  • Cooked ham to taste, either cubed or shredded


Put a splash of water in the bottom of the soup maker

Add the rest of the ingredients, putting the lentils towards the top

Cook on Chunky Setting (or in a pan until the lentils look fluffy)
