Lentil-Potato Soup

Lentil-Potato Soup

 The other night I was in need of a seriously satisfying hearty dinner.  Also, I didn't have the time to soak and cook beans from scratch.  Lentils provide really deep flavor in addition to cooking up pretty quickly.

This is a super simple recipe.  All you need to do is saute the onions in the olive oil quickly, then add the remaining ingredients and let simmer on low.  It's the perfect meal to cook up when you can't pay close attention to what you're cooking.

Serves: 4


  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 potatoes, cubed
  • 2 carrots, peeled & sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 6 cups veggie broth
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently for 3 minutes or until the onions begin to look translucent.
  3. Add the veggies, potatoes, broth, and seasonings to the pot and bring to a boil on high heat.
  4. Once boiling, stir, and reduce heat to medium low.  Simmer for about 45 minutes, or until the lentils and potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
