Vegan Vegetable Lentil Soup
It was a soup kind of day, so I pulled out my stock pot and inventoried my legume stash.
Black lentils won.
(Lentils are a “superfood” high in protein, fiber, iron, and folate, making them one of the five healthiest foods by Health magazine. They are super easy to cook with, since they do not require pre-soaking, like other legumes. Red, green, black lentils? Any color will do!)
I inventoried my veggie supply. I came up with an onion, celery, carrots, a few red potatoes, and a sweet potato.
I grabbed some organic vegetable stock, a couple cans of organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes, some spices, and cranked up the stove. After chopping, simmering, and spicing, the result was delicious. In no time at all, it was SOUP TIME!
Enjoy the Vegan Vegetable Lentil Soup!
