The base for this lovely, everyday soup starts with hearty vegetables for plenty of plant-based fibre and flavour. Its SUPER easy and Yummy the next few days.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp water (or sub oil coconut)
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 small shallots (or any onion will be fine)
  • 4 large carrots chopped
  • 4 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/4 tsp each sea salt and black pepper
  • 3 cups chopped potatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (home-made it best)
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 1 cup uncooked green or brown lentils (thoroughly rinsed and drained)
  • 2 cups chopped sturdy greens (anything you have handy)

Instructions

  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add water (or oil), garlic, shallots/onion (optional), carrots, and celery.
  3. Season with a bit of salt and pepper and stir, I love Herimare spice, at most supermarkets.
  4. Sauté for 4-5 minutes or until slightly tender and golden brown.
  5. Be careful not to burn the garlic (turn heat down if it's cooking too quickly.)
  6. Add potatoes and season with a bit more salt and pepper.
  7. Stir and cook for 2 minutes more.
  8. Add vegetable broth and rosemary or thyme and increase heat to medium high.
  9. Bring to a simmer.
  10. Then add lentils and stir.
  11. Once simmering again, reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes IMPORTANT make sure lentils and potatoes are tender.
  12. Add your greens, stir, and cover.
  13. Cook for 3-4 minutes more to wilt.
  14. Then taste and adjust flavour as needed, adding more salt and pepper for overall flavour, add more vegetable broth if it's become too thick.
  15. Enjoy as is or serve with rice, cauliflower rice, or a side of flatbread or rolls.
  16. I love garnishing with avocado.
  17. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 5 days or in the freezer.
  18. Reheat on the stovetop and add more vegetable broth to rehydrate as needed.
