Amazing Lentil Soup Recipe



This lentil soup recipe is so amazing – both in the taste and nutrient department, but the best thing is that it cooks in 15 minutes and my children are crazy about it!

Amazing lentil soup recipe

I was a bit sceptical at first about creating this soup recipe because I couldn’t imagine any lentil soup being delicious, but I was so amazed at how truly scrumptious this soup is! My children love it – the whole family loves it which is fantastic because it is so incredibly quick and easy to make! It is a wonderful vegetable soup recipe that can be whipped together in thirty minutes and is so incredibly nutritious.

This lentil soup is loaded with antioxidants – especially beta carotene. Lentils are particularly rich in folic acid which is essential for our good health and especially important for pregnant woman and for preventing age-related degenerative diseases.

So, if you were as unsure as I was and can not imagine a lentil soup being delicious, I dare you to give it a try – you will be very pleasantly surprised! This soup also freezes fantastically well.

Amazing Lentil Soup

Ingredients

  • 15ml olive oil
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced or crushed
  • 3 celery sticks, sliced – with our without tops
  • 5 medium sized carrots, chopped into thin rounds
  • 1 small (about 150g) sweet potato, cubed
  • 400g (2c) red split lentils, rinsed
  • 1.75 litres (7c) vegetable stock
Directions

1. Put the olive oil, onions and garlic into a biggish pot.
2. Sweat the onions and garlic for 2 or 3 minutes.
3. Add the rest of the chopped vegetables, lentils and stock and bring to the boil.
4. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
5. My children prefer it chunky, but if you like a smooth soup, once cooked, blend until lovely and smooth – or to what ever consistency you prefer.
