I made Lentil Soup this week for the first time. Tim and Laura made it over Christmas and I loved it, so I stole the recipe from them so I made it and fed it to my guinea pigs- I mean my friends. I didn’t have any carrots, basil, or oregano, but I got Italian style tomatoes for flavor. I use celery instead of carrots ’cause that’s what I had in my fridge. Plus, I don’t have a garlic press so I was just gonna use minced garlic from a jar except I forgot. It was pretty thick like a chili rather than soup, which I really like so I thought it turned out really well. I put lots of pepper in mine, and with every shake it tasted better and better.
1/2 an Onion chopped
1 or 2 Carrots chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
Saute veggies with 2 Tbs of olive oil
Add 1 can Diced Tomatoes (I like the diced tomatoes with roasted garlic or Italian seasoning)
Add 8 cups of warm water/veggie broth and bring to a boil.
Wash a 1 lb bag of lentils add to boiling water along with salt, Basil and Oregano to taste.
Bring to a simmer and let it cook for 30-45 mins.
