Lentil Soup

A friend of mine gave me her lentil soup recipe years ago and I keep losing it!  I'm not sure how that keeps happening.  I decided to just make up my own!

Yield: about 4 servings

Gather Your Ingredients

  • 4 c. chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 c. (total) diced celery and carrots
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c. lentils, sorted and washed
  • Generous handful of fresh, torn spinach
  • 1 T fresh, chopped parsley

Make It:

  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium low heat.  Add carrots, celery and onion.  Saute until they begin to get tender.
  2. Add garlic and saute for a few minutes then add the tomato.
  3. Pour lentils and stock into the saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for approximately 30 minutes, or until your lentils are tender.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach and parsley.  Let sit for 5 minutes to allow greens to wilt and incorporate.
