Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup

Plenty of protein and a great vegetarian option, this lentil soup is not only bursting with flavor but definitely filling. Invite some friends over to try it–this recipe serves 6!

 

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons of olive oil

2 cloves of garlic

1 cup finely chopped onion

1/2 cup finely chopped carrot

1/2 cup finely chopped celery

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 pound lentils, picked and rinsed

1 cup peeled and chopped potatoes (optional)

2 quarts vegetable broth

1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme

 

Directions:

Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat. Once hot, add the garlic, onion, carrot, celery and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes. Add the lentils, potato, broth, thyme and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with chopped fresh parsley. Serves 6.
