"This is the best soup I've ever tasted, if I do say so myself. It has a lot of flavor and is amazing on its own, but extraordinary coupled with freshly baked whole wheat bread. It's become a family favorite!"

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat until bubbling. Add onion, reduce heat to medium, and cook and stir until onions are browned and slightly translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add cherry tomatoes and bell pepper; cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add water and red lentils, increase heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer until lentils are cooked, 15 to 20 minutes. Add diced tomatoes with juice, basil, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Don't reduce the salt--the salt is very important to the flavor of the dish. If you want to add a bit more of basil, salt, or pepper, do so, because when I make it, I admit to eyeballing sometimes.
