Easy Lentil Soup - Vegan, Gluten Free, & Oil Free

Lentil soup is by far my favorite soup ever. I typically stick to two brands when I get lentil soup from the grocery store. Either Amy's canned soups or Whole Foods brand when they have it out on the food line that day. Both are super delicious, but can be very pricey. That's why today I am sharing with you a equally (if not MORE delicious) recipe that will cut the price WAY down for you. It also serves up to six servings! 

What You'll Need:

1 cup finely chopped (organic) celery

1 1/2 - 2 cups chopped carrots

3 cups lentils 

32oz organic vegetable broth

1 small can of organic diced tomato 

1 tsp pink sea salt 

1 Tbs Black Pepper

1 Tbs Onion Powder

1 Tbs Cumin  

1/2 to 1 tsp fresh minced garlic

1 tsp smoked paprika 


 

Start off by prepping...

Chop the organic carrots and celery (I get my organic produce from Trader Joe's)

Boil about three cups of lentils with 4 cups of water. Reduce to a low simmer and set a timer for about 20 minutes or until tender! 

Feel free to sprinkle about a teaspoon of pink sea salt in for flavor! 

Add in one 32oz organic vegetable broth into a pot of medium heat. 

Then add in one small can of organic diced tomatoes. 

Add in your cooked lentils, chopped vegetables, and now were ready to add the spices.

Let it simmer on medium heat for about one hour or until vegetables are tender and delicious
