Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup


Looking for recipes to try that are GF,DF,Paleo etc… so decided upon Lentil Soup. The taste is pretty good but I am coming clean when I say I don’t love lentils. Just something about the texture is off putting to me. That said, if you like them this recipe will work for you.

1lbs of dried lentils (soaked for at least 24 hrs)
1 onion
2 carrots
4 stalks of celery
1 red bell pepper
1 parsnip
handful of cherry tomatoes
1/2 tbs of cumin
1/2 tbs of chili powder
1/2 tbs of coriander
2 quarts of Vegetable broth

Soak your beans overnight. Rinse thoroughly. In a large pot heated to medium high add your veggies and sweat them out. Add spices and garlic and stir for about 1 min to let the spices release their oils. Add lentils and broth. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer for an hour. I mash mine with a potato masher to thicken it up.
