Lentil Soup

Lisa first introduced this soup while going through her 21 day detox. It really is a great  soup, so I wanted to share it again in case you missed it. You can read more about Lisa’s detox journey by searching earlier posts (from September).

1 1/4 cups lentils

3 Tabs. butter

1 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tabs. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

1 – 2 carrots, grated

2 stalks celery, chopped

3 quarts chicken broth (use the homemade chicken bone broth)

salt and pepper to taste

Rinse and drain lentils, then set aside.  Heat butter with onion, garlic and celery, cooking 4-5 minutes.  Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 1 minute.  Add carrots, lentils and stock and bring to a boil.  Cook at a rapid simmer for 40 minutes or until the lentils are soft. (Season with salt and pepper during cooking time)

If you like a smooth lentil soup, you can use your immersion blender, food processor or blender and mix your soup until the desired consistency.   You can add chopped cilantro to your bowls just before serving.     Serves 4
