Lentil Soup Recipe

Updated: Nov 9, 2020

Nothing better than a cozy warm filling soup during fall, and this one is a must!

Lentils are low in calories, rich in iron and folate and an excellent source of protein. They pack health-promoting polyphenols and may reduce several heart disease risk factors. They're easily cooked in 5–20 minutes.



Ingredients:


1 tbsp of olive oil

2 cloves of farlic

1/2 onion

Celery

Carrots

Potatoes

Lentils

Bay leaf


Seasoning:


Turmeric

Ashwagandha Powder (Reduce stress)

Sea Salt

Pepper


Instructions:


First you're gonna soak the lentils for 4 hours. This process is not required, although, the outer shell of lentils (and some beans) contains anti-nutrients that can interfere with digestion. The solution is to soak them, thereby neutralizing the anti-nutrients. Whereas larger beans sometimes require up to 24 hours of soaking, lentils are small enough that two to four hours should suffice


Sauté 3 cloves of chopped garlic on olive oil. Then add all ingredients, including seasoning and stir them for about 1 minute. Add 2 cups of vegetable broth and let it cook for about 45 min on low heat.


Serve it on a bowl and add a piece of whole grain toast as a side. Light a candle, set the table and enjoy it!
