The fall season is upon us and I’m kinda okay with it I guess? lol Here’s a classic lentil soup to bring some warmth to your kitchen.
This recipe is incredibly simple and flavorful! It freezes really well too if you wanna save leftovers for another time! Enjoy with your favorite grain, croutons, and/or topped with parmesan!
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 2 large onions, chopped
- 1 carrot, chopped
- ½ teaspoon each thyme and oregano
- 4 cups vegetable stock
- 1 cup brown or green lentils, rinsed
- ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley or cilantro
- 2 cups canned diced tomatoes
- Salt to taste
Heat oil in a large pot and sauté onions and carrots for 3-5 minutes. Add herbs and sauté 1 minute. Add stock, lentils, parsley or cilantro, and tomatoes. Cook over medium heat, covered, until lentils are tender, about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally, adding water as needed if the soup dries out. Adjust for salt and enjoy!
