Ingredients

    * 2 cups lentils, rinsed
    * 6-8 cups of vegetable stock
    * 1 medium yellow onion
    * 2 cups of chopped yellow potatoes
    * 2 garlic cloves, chopped
    * 3-4 carrots, chopped
    * 1 tablespoon dried basil
    * 2 bay leaves
    * salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Pour vegetable stock into a large stock pot and turn the stove on high heat.

Add rinsed lentils, carrots, garlic, onion, potatoes, and herbs. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer (medium-low) and cover for an hour.

Check often to make sure water level is not too low, adding small amounts at a time if needed.

The end result is a thick soup, with the lentils being broke down and soft.

Taste and season with salt & pepper to preference.

  • Lentils are the best and this recipe is one of my favorites. I also add 1 tablespoon of liquid smoke and 2 tablespoons of Tapatio while cooking. Delicious! - 6/17/13
