A delicios soup for any time of the year
In a large saucepan heat up the olive oil and add carrots, leek & celery. Stir for 10-12 minutes until the vegetables are soft, then add the garlic and stir for a further 2-3 minutes. Add red lentils and stir.
Place the gammon shank in the saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 2 hours.
Grill 6 pieces of bacon until extra crispy, remove from the grill and leave to cool. Once cooled cut into small crumb-like pieces for garnish. *
Once the meat is tender, remove the joint and place onto a chopping board removing any skin, fat and bones. Then shred the meat back into the soup.
Serve with your bacon crumbs on top and a side of crusty bread & butter.
