COOK TIME

Hearty yet healthy, our stick-to-your-ribs, Tuscan-inspired recipe for Countryside Lentil soup is pure comfort in a bowl! Put out a basket of crusty whole grain bread, and this one rounds out perfectly as a main dish meal.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups water
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (12-ounce) package dried lentils, washed and drained
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil; saute onion and garlic 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 50 minutes, or until lentils are tender. Discard bay leaf before serving.

 

Notes
  • For a heartier soup, add about 1 cup chopped smoked ham or leftover cooked beef.
