Spiced carrot and lentil soup

Found this on the BBC food site (great place), adapted it somewhat for Thermione and my trusted and tried soup method and it's delicious.  Warming and filling.

Spiced carrot and lentil soup

1 - 2 tbsp curry paste ( used Patak's korma paste and it was a heaped serving spoonful)
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped (or fresh soup mix veg, which is what I used, 200g of it)
a bit of soft butter
140g red lentils
1l hot vegetable stock (water and veg stock pot)

Put the veg and the butter in the bowl.  Reverse mix to coat the veg in the butter.  Saute on 100, reverse speed 2 for 8 mins
Add the curry paste, reverse mix briefly and saute again as above for 4 mins

Add the lentils, the stockpots and the boiling water.
Cook on 100 for 20 mins, speed 2/3

Allow to cool slightly, then zizz on 10 for around a minute.  If too thick for your taste, top up a bit with boiling water.

Serve with a blob of natural yogurt.
