Red lentils and brown rice make for a thick vegetarian soup that's full of fiber, filling you up quickly. I came up with this when I only had a few ingredients to work with while in the mood for lentil soup. Top with Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, diced tomatoes, red lentils, brown rice, Italian seasoning, celery flakes, white pepper, and marjoram. Bring soup to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until lentils break down and rice is tender, about 55 minutes.

  • Stir balsamic vinegar into the soup just before serving.

Cook's Note:

I use tomato-flavored balsamic vinegar, so feel free to experiment with different varieties.

This makes a hearty, delicious vegan soup (without the cheese). We used 1 stick of minced celery rather than the celery seed based on what we had on hand. Everyone, kids and adults alike, look forward to eating this soup again. The balsamic vinegar drizzled at the end really makes for great flavor. Thank you! Read More
