Lentil Soup

What you need: 

1/4 cup white or yellow onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 medium stalks celery, chopped
2 small potatoes, unpeeled and chopped very small
1 cup brown lentils
4 cups water
1 veggie bouillon cube
1 clove garlic, minced
1 bay leaf, optional
1 teaspoon Bragg's liquid aminos, optional

What you do: 

1. In a medium sized pot, add all ingredients. Bring to a boil, turn down to medium/low heat, and cook until lentils are soft, thick and mushy, stirring every 8 to 10 minutes.
2. Make sure to keep the lentils covered in water and to not let the soup settle and burn at the bottom. You can prevent this by adding additional water while cooking throughout.
3. Cook for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. You will want the lentils to get soft and the potatoes to fall apart, making the soup thick. That is why it's essential to chop the potatoes very small. Enjoy!
You can also add barley and/or TVP to this recipe.

  I love this super simple recipe !! Thanks so much for posting! I did nothing more than double recipe and Im happy I did because I will be enjoying the leftovers during the week!


Great recipe! Quick, easy, and delicious! A total keeper.
I just made this because I'm not feeling too shabby and it's exactly what the doctor ordered :o)
I used some vegetable broth I had on hand and the veggies I had in my fridge (carrots, celery, and frozen corn).


Great recipe!! Love the fact there was no oil and just the veg cube for seasonings, I didn't even add anything else in addition to the listed ingredients!


I loved it!  Very easy and good.  Served it with Amazing Rosemary Bread.
