Beefy Lentil Soup

Submitted by: OLIVERSMOM2

Introduction

No actual beef in the soup, but beef broth makes the dish a little richer. Sometimes we add a little cayenne to spice it up. No actual beef in the soup, but beef broth makes the dish a little richer. Sometimes we add a little cayenne to spice it up.

Ingredients

    Beef broth, bouillon, consomme, 6 cups
    Lentils, 1 cup
    Canned Tomatoes, 14.5oz can
    3 carrots roughly chopped
    1 large Onion roughly chopped
    3 tsp minced Garlic
    Thyme, dried 1 tsp
    Marjoram, dried, .5 tsp
    Olive Oil, 1 tbsp

Tips

Optional- I usually run my emersion blender through the soup and get it to a smooth consistancy once cooked.

Since I prep the veggies while the lentils are cooking, I did not include that in the prep time.


Directions

1. Put the lentils and Beef broth into a medium pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.

2. While the lentils are cooking, chop up the onion and carrot. Saute them with the oil and garlic until the onions are a transulcent.

3. Add the onions & Carrot mixture, the tomatoes and dried herbs to the lentils. Let cook for another 15 minutes.
