Ingredients
  • 2Tbs. olive oil(I use regular olive oil, but extra virgin or any similar oil would work)
  • 3 carrots peeled and diced
  • 3 celery stalks diced
  • 4cloves garlic, minced(can substitute for 2 tsp. garlic powder)
  • 2tsp. dried oregano
  • 2tsp. dried basil
  • 2tsp. dried onion powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 128 oz. can crushed tomatoes
  • 7cups water
  • 1cup fresh spinach, rinsed and chopped
  • 2Tbs. white vinegar
  • 1tsp. sea salt
  • 1tsp. fresh ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. In a large stock pot, heat oil over a medium heat. Add the carrots, celery, and garlic; cook until tender or about 8 minutes.
  2. Stir in the onion powder, bay leaf, oregano, basil and red pepper flakes; cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Once the lentils are cooked through, add the spinach and cook until it wilts. Stir in the vinegar, salt and pepper.
  6. Serve while hot and enjoy!
