Making lentil soup is as easy as 1, 2, 3 with this great recipe. Everything goes in one pot and it is minimal prep, minimal clean up but with maximum flavor and taste.
I have more than one lentil soup recipe but I love this one because it is much simpler than my other one (made with brown lentils, tomato, onion, garlic, etc.) All you need are the lentils, chicken broth and an onion.
It’s quite a healthy soup, low in fat and packed with nutritious vitamins and fiber. Plus it’s really affordable to make especially if you’re feeding a crowd. Also, it’s so simple. Even if you despise cooking, I think you might like this recipe.
Here’s the recipe:
Simple Lentil Soup (Just 3 Ingredients)
- 1 c dry red lentils
- 4 c chicken broth*
- 1 onion (diced)
*Vegetarian? No problem, just substitute the chicken broth for veggie broth.
Sort through the lentils to ensure that there are no small stones or anything else (yes, it can happen).
Finely dice the onion and set aside.
Pour the chicken broth in a large pot.
Add the lentils and the onion. Season with salt and pepper and stir well.
Cover partially and allow it to simmer for 15-25 minutes or until the lentils and the onions are tender.
Then using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
Garnish with some red pepper flakes and a lemon wedge.
Serve & Enjoy!
