Lentil Soup

lentil soup Since we are all so busy these days, I wanted to share another meal that can be made quickly and easily. After you prep the ingredients, all you need to do is throw them into a stockpot and set the timer. Its a great recipe for people trying to loose weight and those on exercise routines as it's full of healthy protein and is virtually fat free.   






This recipe and more can be found in one of my favorite acid reflux diet books: "Eating For Acid Reflux" by Jill Sklar and Annabel Cohen.




Lentil Soup



2 Tbsp of olive oil 

1 cup of diced carrots 

1/2 cup of diced celery 

8 cups of vegetable broth 

2 cups of dry lentils (green or red), rinsed 

1/2 tspn of ground cumin 

1/2 cup of freshly chopped parsley




To make this even healthier, I recommend either mixing 6 cups of veggie broth with 2 cups of water . You could use a lot more water but the taste begins to suffer.



Step 1



Prep all of the vegetables and throw them into a large pot over a medium-high heat and get to a boil.


Step 2



Turn down the heat and let the soup simmer for about 45 minutes. The lentiils should be softened and the soup thicker than in the beginning.
