Easy Lentil Soup 🥣🍅🥕
(Makes 6 to 8 servings)
Over medium heat, drizzle the olive oil in a Dutch oven or stock pot. When it’s hot, add the onion, carrot and celery and cook for about 8 minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent.
Add the garlic cloves and saute for about 1 minute. Next add the lentils, chopped tomatoes, broth and spices, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low, and cook until the lentils are done, about 40 minutes.
You can serve as-is, or if you want a smoother consistency, use an immersion blender to puree the soup. Optional: Serve topped with a splash of fresh lemon juice and your choice of fresh herb.
