It’s a chilly evening, and you are craving a super quick, easy-to-make dish that will satisfy your hunger, nourish you and, most importantly, be delicious. I give you one of my favourite soups to make and eat. It’s high in fibre, satisfying, delicious and super-quick to prepare. Plus it’s vegetarian!
½cupred lentilsthoroughly washed and drained of access water
Optionalyour favourite chopped herbs
In a pot, heat olive oil. Add the onion and saute until the onion turns translucent. Add garlic, celery, ginger and carrots. Cook until softens.
Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for about 15 minutes until lentils are soft.
If the soup is too thick, add some more carrot juice or water.
Adjust spices to taste.
To serve, place the desired amount in a serving bowl and garnish with your favourite herbs, such as cilantro, basil, parsley, dill or mint.
For a spicier version, while mixing in the spices add some chilli flakes or a bit of chilli pepper powder. The quantities here are for about 4 servings. You can double all ingredients to have more as this soup is great the next day too.
