The smell of spices will take over your kitchen as this low-fat lentil soup simmers away on the stove. This is a great healthy recipe that fits lots of mindful eating plans, so hopefully it will suit your plans for dinner tonight.
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 cup carrot, chopped
- 1/2 cup celery, chopped
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 pound dry lentils
- 1 cup tomatoes, diced
- 2 quarts vegetable broth
- 1/2 tsp coriander, ground
- 1/2 tsp cumin, ground
In a large cooking pot, saute onion, carrot and celery in oil until the onion softens up. Sprinkle in the salt. Add in the rest of the ingredients and give it a stir through.
Turn up the heat and bring everything to a boil, then reduce it down to simmer. Let it cook on a simmering heat for about 40 minutes (or until the lentils are tender). Serve your lentil soup hot right away, or use a stick blender in the pot to puree it for a smoother dish.
