Delicious and Comforting Lentil Soup
Our delicious lentil soup is comforting, healthy, and hearty. The perfect dish for every season.
(I use regular olive oil, but extra virgin or any similar oil would work)
carrots peeled and diced
celery stalks diced
(can substitute for 2 tsp. garlic powder)
dried onion powder
28 oz. can
fresh spinach, rinsed and chopped
fresh ground black pepper
In a large stock pot, heat oil over a medium heat. Add the carrots, celery, and garlic; cook until tender or about 8 minutes.
Stir in the onion powder, bay leaf, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes; cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
Rinse and sort lentils to make sure there are no rocks in them. Sounds weird, but the last 2 bags of lentils I bought had a rock in them.
Stir in the lentils, crushed tomatoes, and 7 cups of water. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for at least 1 hour stirring periodically.
Once the lentils are cooked through, add the spinach and cook until it wilts. Stir in the vinegar, salt and pepper.
Serve while hot and enjoy!
