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.

Ingredients:
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

Directions:
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.
