Ingredients for Lentil Soup Recipe

  • 100 g of green lenses
  • 2 Carrots, sliced
  • 1 Small / medium plain. onion
  • 1 Small / medium red onion
  • 2 Chopped cloves garlic (you can easily use more if you want it)
  • 1 Chopped red chili without the seeds.(or as much as you want)
  • 2 Cans of peeled tomatoes, preferably with basil and oregano (do not you use just plain and spiced soup with basil and oregano)
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • ½ Chicken bouillon cube
  • 2 ½ cups. water
  • A little oil

Directions:

  1. Sauté onion, chili and garlic in a saucepan.
  2. Come lentils and carrots and let it Sauté a little also.
  3. Put the peeled tomatoes and water in saucepan and simmer for 40 to 45 min.

Serve it with some cheese and a piece of whole-wheat bread.

If you want the meat to the soup, then you can slice some turkey bacon into small strips and Sauté it in pan before you start making the dish. When it’s Sautéed put it on a piece of kitchen tissue so it can remove some of the fat from it, then when you serve the dish sprinkle some of the bacon on top with the cheese.

NB: you can if you want change from red onion with a normal onion, but personally I like the colors it offers, as well as the taste of onion.

One of the good qualities with lentils it that they will make you feel full for a long time, thus making you eat less later on it the day cutting down the number of calories you will eat.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful lentil soup recipe.

    I also enjoy eating and preparing lentil soup. I have not tried adding tomatoes to my lentil soup yet, so this will be a new experience for me.

    My favorite lentil soup is a Curry Lentil Shitake Mushroom Soup which is usually my ‘go-to’ lunch staple. I make enough to last a few days.

    Thanks for sharing that delicious lentil soup recipe.

    I am a big fan of lentils as well. However, I have never added tomatoes to my lentil soup so this recipe will be fun to try out.

    My favorite lentil soup recipe is my own Curried Lentil Shitake Mushroom Soup which is a hearty soup containing lots of onion, carrots, celery, garlic, parsley and either shitake or portabello mushrooms. Sometimes I add whole barley for a lentil barley variation.

    Because I am vegan, I don’t add chicken stock to my lentil soup.
    Instead, I rely on the strong flavor of fresh, organic vegetables to create a tasty stock. Plus, tumeric powder or curry takes the flavor to a another level.
