Favorite Vegetarian Lentil Soup

With a quick method and a variety of vegetables, this vegetarian Lentil Soup is a perfect weeknight family dinner!

– Reduced-sodium broth – Crushed canned tomatoes – Onion – Carrots – Brown lentils – Garlic – Thyme and bay leaves

Ingredients Needed:

Prep the vegetables. Heat olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. And the onion, carrots, and garlic. Stir to coat with oil, and cook for about 6 minutes or until just starting to soften.

Step 1.

Add the tomatoes, broth, thyme, salt, and bay leaf. Stir, then cover, and bring to a boil. Remove cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and stir in the lentils.

Step 2.

Cover slightly, so the lid is just partly on and some steam can escape, and simmer until the lentils are soft or about 20-25 minutes.

Step 3.

Serve warm.  Top with Parmesan cheese, shredded cheese, additional salt and pepper, and/or hot sauce for parents as desired.

Step 4.
