Ingredients

    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1 medium yellow onion, chopped
    1 medium carrot, chopped
    1 small red bell pepper, chopped
    1 jalapeno pepper, diced
    7 garlic cloves, sliced
    6 cups of water
    2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
    1 cup dried brown lentils
    28 oz crushed tomatoes, undrained
    2 bay leaves
    1 tbsp chipotle chili powder

Directions

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add onion, cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in carrot, bell pepper, jalapeno and garlic and cook 4 minutes more.
Add water, stock, lentils, tomatoes, and bay leaves.
Bring to a boil over high heat.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 18-20 minutes until the lentils and veggies are tender.
If you prefer a heartier texture to your soup, let it simmer for another 20 minutes or so to cook off some of the liquid.
Season to taste with the chili powder and a few twists of fresh ground pepper.
