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 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 cups water
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (12-ounce) package dried lentils, washed and drained
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil; saute onion and garlic 3 minutes. Add water, chicken broth, lentils, carrots, bay leaf, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 40 to 45 minutes, or until lentils are tender. REMOVE AND DISCARD BAY LEAF BEFORE SERVING.

 

Notes
  • For a heartier soup, add about 1 cup chopped smoked ham or leftover cooked beef or even chopped cold cuts along with the other ingredients.
     
  • Trust us! You'll want to have some fresh biscuits handy so you can sop up every last delicious drop!
