Lentil Soup

Rob and I loooved this soup. It is the best healthy soup I've tasted! :) This is my own recipe adapted from the food network.

The Best Lentil Soup


2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 C thinly sliced carrots
1 C thinly sliced celery
2 tsp salt
1 pound lentils, picked and rinsed
1 cup drained, diced tomatoes (or fresh)
2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth (I used both)
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cumin


Place the olive oil into a large pot and set over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion powder, carrot, celery and salt and simmer a few minutes. Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander and cumin and stir to combine. Heat to high and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35-40 minutes. Add desired amount of rice to each bowl and serve immediately.
