This is seriously one of my FAVORITE soups in the whole world! It is simple, healthy and EASY to make. It can also have TONS of variations. This recipe is in the book.
2 tbsp olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
3 medium carrots chopped
5 cups beef broth or water
1 ½ cups dried lentils, rinsed or even better, soaked overnight in water
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Juice from 1 lemon
½ cup steamed, brown rice or quinoa (optional)
Fresh-chopped cilantro (optional)
Fresh-chopped tomato (optional)
Heat oil in large sauce pan, sauté onions and carrots for 5 minutes. Add broth and lentils and bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until lentils are cooked through. Add brown rice or quinoa, lemon juice, seasoning it with salt and pepper. Serve with fresh chopped cilantro and tomato on top.
*This is my favorite soup to eat when I have a bad stomach day. It just seems to soothe my insides.
