Try this delicious and simple lentil soup I’ve been meaning to post for a while! It’s quick to throw together and one of my fav’s. Don’t skip out of the fresh parsley and shallot, these ingredients truly make the flavour.
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 medium Yellow Onion, diced
1 teaspoon Cumin
3 medium Carrots, chopped
1 medium Yukon Gold Potato, small cubes
3-4 Garlic Cloves, whole
2 cups Lentils
2 litres Vegetable Stock
1-2 tablespoons Tamari
1-2 shots of Tabasco Sauce
1 bunch Parsley, chopped
1-2 Shallots, finely sliced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat olive oil and sauté diced onion with cumin for 2 minutes. Add carrots and potatoes and cook for 2 more minutes.
Add garlic cloves whole, stock, tamari and Tabasco.
Add lentils, bring to a boil then reduce and simmer until lentils are soft and cooked.
Add parsley and serve with thinly sliced shallot on top.
