Lentil soup is a staple at my house. Lentils are super nutritious have lots of fiber and are much easier and quicker to cook then beans.
1/2 Cup of lentils has 9 g of protein and 8 g of fiber, whoo hoo!
I usually just throw what I have into my lentils but this is more or less the way it usually goes.
1-2 boxes organic vegi broth
3 cloves garlic
2 celery stalks
1 can chopped tomatoes (the roasted ones work great for this)
1 1/2 cups red lentils
1-2 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. chipotle chile powder
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to a pot. Cover simmer till lentils are cooked through approximately 30-45 minutes.
