Lentil Vegetable Soup Recipe

0 Comments

The minute a chill hits the air, I am in the kitchen making soup.

There is nothing more comforting than a pot of soup simmering on the stove with a loaf of bread or biscuits baking in the oven.

While I would love this to happen all the time, the reality is that I usually don’t have time to bake bread or keep a pot of soup simmering on the stove for hours.

But I can make soup especially if it’s an easy recipe like this Lentil Vegetable Soup.

Total cooking and prep time for this meal is under 35 minutes. Thanks to frozen vegetables and a can of fire roasted tomatoes, this soup is as easy as pie.

And actually, I prefer to make it over pie, even though I love pumpkin or apple pie if someone else is making it for me.

Don’t sweat it either or you do not bake your own bread. There are plenty of loaves at the grocery store or bakery just waiting for you to take them home.

But please make sure to use red lentils in this recipe if you want your soup to cook quickly. Green and yellow lentils can be used but you will need some extra cooking time added to make this soup.

If you prefer not including a vegan meal in your diet, this soup would be great with some shredded cooked chicken or pre-cooked smoked sausage added at the end of cooking.

A bowl of this would also be a great way to start off a healthy dinner. I always make a double batch because a warm bowl of soup is perfect heated in the microwave for lunch.

If you are into soup season like I am then you will want to make soup several times a week. Try my unique recipes for Cabbage and Beef Soup or Miso Shrimp Soup with Ramen.

To me, all soups are delicious and great comfort food. Enjoy!
