Classic Lentil Soup

 
 
Lentils are a staple in plant based cuisine. They are an excellent source of soluble fiber, protein, and energy! We love them on their own or added to a good salad, but we find them the most enjoyable in a cozy soup.

Classic Lentil Soup

Place the olive oil in a large pot or dutch oven and set over a medium heat.

Once hot, add the onion, carrot, celery and salt.
Sweat until the onion are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes.

Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth & herbs and stir to combine.

Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil.
