One Pot Lentil Vegetable Soup

Lentil soup, and split pea soup are probably my favorite soups. I always keep a few cans of lentil soup on hand for quick meals. After devouring too many pretzels with almond butter after a bike ride today, I was feeling the lentil soup. Despite the fact that it has been in the mid 70’s all weekend long.

Lentil Soup

This soup is easy to make, works with any vegetables you have on hand, and really only needs one pot. You can spice it differently depending on your mood. I went for hearty vegetable this time, but curry spices are always fun.

1 cup lentils

Olive oil

1 potato

2 carrots

1 onion

3 cloves of garlic

Tomatoes or tomato sauce

Water or vegetable broth

Soy sauce or Braggs

Kale

Chop up potato and carrots and sauté in a pot with olive oil. Once the potatoes start to soften, throw in the onion and garlic and cook about 3 minutes longer. Add in the lentils and about 5 cups of water or vegetable broth. Add in tomato or sauce, but definitely go easy if using sauce. Add in desired spices and cook until everything is soft. Throw in kale and cook until kale has wilted.

The best part? The COST! The whole pot cost probably $2.00, and will last for about 3 or 4 meals.
