Why I Love This Recipe

This soup is inspired by my favorite Indian dish, dal. After a day out in the woods, this soup is fabulous! Easy, super quick and delicious!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Tbsp. oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 lb. lentils (I like to use green French lentils)
2 quarts chicken stock or water
1 Tbsp. vegetable broth powder if using water
2 tsp. curry powder
Dash of cayenne pepper
Seasoned salt to taste


In a large soup pot, sauté onion, garlic, carrot and celery in oil until tender. Then add lentils and cover with stock or water by 2-3 inches.

Add spices and simmer over medium heat until lentils are tender (about one hour).

Stir occasionally and adjust seasoning if needed.

You may add water if more broth is desired.
