VERY BEST LENTIL SOUP | vegetarian one-pot lentil soup recipe
WHAT’S IN THIS VEGAN LENTIL SOUP
A cup of green lentils goes a long way in this cozy, chunky soup. But it’s really the rest of the ingredients that makes your taste buds dance.
Mirepoix Vegetables: Chopped celery, carrots, onions and garlic are the classics that make us feel closest to home.
Roasted Tomatoes: A can of fire roasted tomatoes adds a hint of smokiness and lends to this soup’s gorgeous red tone.
Tomato Paste: All you need are two tablespoons to intensify the body of the soup.
Kale: An easy way to amp up the antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients, and colors in this soup.
Lentils: Green or brown lentils work best in this soup.
Earthy Herbs: A blend of cumin, oregano, basil, and thyme embodies that Mediterranean flavor.
Liquids: You can use water or broth or a mix of both, which is what I usually do.
Lemon: Helps to brighten and balance out the deep flavors.
