Chunky lentil, red onion and courgette soup

Winter warmth. Serves 2-3 as a main meal.

1 red onion
1 courgette
4-6 tbsps vegan red wine (optional)
3 tomatoes
200ml red lentils (measure them in a measuring jug)
600ml vegetable stock
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano

Chop the onion and fry gently in a saucepan until soft. Add the wine if using. Cut the courgette into chunks, add to the onion and sweat for 10 minutes until soft. Skin and chop the tomatoes (dropping them in boiling water gets the skins loose) and add to the mixture. Add the herbs, lentils and stock, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
