Countryside Lentil Soup

Hearty yet healthy, our stick-to-your-ribs, Tuscan-inspired recipe for Countryside Lentil soup is pure comfort in a bowl! Put out a basket of crusty whole grain bread, and this one rounds out perfectly as a main dish meal.

What You’ll Need:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups water
5 cups chicken broth
1 (12-ounce) package dried lentils, washed and drained
3 carrots, finely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What To Do:

1. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil; saute onion and garlic 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 50 minutes, or until lentils are tender. Discard bay leaf before serving.
