Description

A really flavorful and filling lentil soup!


Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups diced carrots, about 2 large carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger, or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup uncooked lentils, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 56 cups vegetable broth, I like to use low sodium*

Instructions

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat.  Add the olive oil, onion, carrots and celery and cook until softened, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add in the garlic and fresh ginger and cook for another 2 minutes.  Add the remaining ingredients, stir until combined, cover with a lid and simmer soup until vegetables, lentils and quinoa are all cooked through, 30-40 minutes.
  3. Enjoy soup hot or refrigerate up to 4 days.

Notes

*I like my soups to be pretty thick, so feel free to add more broth if you prefer a thinner soup.
