This lentil soup is so easy to throw together and cook for a warm and hearty weeknight one-pot dinner. Serve soup topped with grated cheese (Cheddar, pepper Jack, or mozzarella) and Greek yogurt, if you like.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place water, lentils, spinach, onion, celery, carrots, garlic, salt, onion powder, pepper, and liquid aminos in a large soup pot. Bring to a rapid boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cover and cook until lentils are done but not mushy, 25 to 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Cook's Notes:

Make it even easier by using a 12-ounce package of frozen mirepoix (blend of onions, celery, and carrots) instead of spending time dicing them.

Substitute soy sauce for liquid aminos, if desired.

Loved it. I made it with yellow and brown lentils and ham. Didn't use the spinach or aminos. One of my favorite soups. Just cooked on top of stove. Read More
