Day 6 - Christmassy tomato soup

Today is Chris's birthday so we are going out for dinner, however, here is what we had for lunch.

Extra Easy; all food free.
1 large onion, diced finely
3-4 sticks of celery, diced finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 carton of passata, plus about half a carton's worth of water (to get the last bits out)
A good slug of tomato puree
about 1 litre of Christmas turkey stock (strained and skimmed and clear)
Leftover roast Christmas turkey (frozen with the stock) - lean meat only, no skin etc
2 rashers of lean bacon, fat trimmed and removed
Black pepper
Pinch of sugar or PerfectSweet/Splenda
300g red lentils

Just brown the bacon, onions, celery and garlic in some low-cal cooking spray until golden, and then add everything to the slow cooker. Stir. Switch on slow cooker. Voila! When you get home from shopping...soup.
