Barre Menu: Lentil Soup

Old man winter has started to blow. It’s time to wrap ourselves up and stay cozy while the snow falls. Keep yourself warm this winter with delicious and easy homemade soups. This simple meal will leave you feeling warm, cozy and satisfied! Just mix your favorite vegetables with some vegetable broth, add some lentils for protein and season away. Make as little or as much as you want. Soup is great to freeze for another cold day later in the season. Here is one of my favorite simple soups to try; Enjoy!  

Hot Lentil Soup with Spinach and Tomatoes 2 Servings

  • ¼ onion, diced

  • 1 large carrot, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • Handful of spinach, chopped

  • 2 cup vegetable broth

  • ½ cup brown or green lentils dried or canned (drained and rinsed)

  • 2 tomato, diced

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar

  • ¼ tsp oregano

  • ¼ tsp basil

  • Pinch of thyme

  • Salt and pepper to taste  

In medium pot heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Toss onions, garlic and carrots into pot and cook for 5- 8 minutes. Add in spinach and cook until wilted. Add broth, tomatoes, lentils, vinegar and spices. Stir to combine and bring to boil over medium heat. Turn heat to medium low and simmer for 15- 30 minutes until lentils are cooked but not mushy. If using canned lentils the cook time will be closer to 15 minutes. If using dried lentils the cook time will be 30 minutes.
