Lentil Soup 3
From: CR

This is my family's favorite soup.
I make it often when the weather gets cold.

  • 1 1/3 cup lentils
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups vegetable stock or water
  • 4 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 or 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
Cook lentils in stock for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute veggies until softened, add spices and cook another minute or so.
Add veggies to lentils and simmer for 1 hour.
Add tomatoes in the last 5 minutes of cooking.
