My Mother's Lentil Soup

My Mother's Lentil Soup: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Dependable, hearty, and nourishing, just like Mom! This soup is hearty enough to serve as a main dish, accompanied by bread and salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lentils, uncooked
  • 10 cups water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 medium new potatoes, cut in chunks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Tabasco sauce, optional

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in a large soup pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer.
  • Cook covered for about 45 minutes, until the lentils are soft and start to fall apart.
  • Some people prefer the lentils very soft, others prefer them a bit more chewy. Use your judgement! If a spicier soup is desired, add more salt or pepper, or even a splash or two of Tabasco sauce

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
