  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Cook lentils in boiling water until beginning to soften, 8 to 10 minutes. Add chard; continue cooking until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add potatoes to the boiling water, reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and cook until the potatoes are completely cooked, about 12 minutes.
  3. Mix lemon juice, crushed garlic, and salt together in a bowl; add to the pot. Continue to cook at a simmer another 5 minutes. Stir olive oil into the mixture. Increase heat to high and cook another 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Taste the soup while cooking and tune the garlic, salt, and lemon juice according to taste.

little too much lemon and I will add cumin next time but delicious!!!!!

Instead of chard you can use spinach and cilantro

Wow! So good. Do not add cumin. Decrease the lemon to 3/4 cup. Has a great lemony flavor.

Awesome recipe!

This soup was really great! I was surprised by how much flavor it had based on the ingredients, but it really delivered. The lemon juice really pulled it together. Will definitely make it again
