moment of grace

Although I'm sure there are several people who would be willing to attest to my soup fanaticism (and should this subsequently mean skill?) I have had a very disheartening run lately, of disasters running to the inedible. Yes, sacrelige, I know. At any rate, to celebrate the first deliciously decent bowl of soup this month (year?!) - I will regale you with instructions.
everything roughly chopped -
half onion in butter+/olive oil
add - carrot x 2 potato x 2 half a butternut squash a few spring onions
healthy pinch of smoked paprika handful of torn basil leaves cup and a half of red lentils
water, just to cover (more if you insist on thin soup)
salt to taste
bring to a boil
let simmer until all squishily tender
yellow soup happiness. a moment of grace?
