Rich Tomato Lentil Soup

Submitted by: LILYGIRL83

Introduction

Serves 2 as a main course, 4 as part of a meal. Nutritional information is for 2 servings. I use low sodium broth, but I think the nutritional information uses regular broth which is why the sodium content is so high. Serves 2 as a main course, 4 as part of a meal.

Ingredients

    1/2 cup dry red lentils, sorted and rinsed
    3 cups broth divided (I use un-chicken broth)
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    1 medium carrot, chopped
    1 large shallot, chopped (or 1/2 small onion)
    1 clove garlic, minced
    splash of red wine
    1/4 cup tomato paste (1/2 a small can)
    1 15 oz can tomato sauce
    splash of white balsamic vinegar
    salt and plenty of ground pepper to taste

Directions

Cook lentils in 2 cups of both for 30 minutes, or until tender and breaking up. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place a medium skillet or sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add olive oil then celery, carrot, shallot, and garlic and sweat with a sprinkle of salt until just starting to get some color. Add a splash of wine and simmer until wine is nearly evaporated.

Add tomato paste and smush around. Cook one minute more then add tomato sauce and lentils, including any remaining cooking liquid. Stir to incorporate and cook 5 minutes stirring frequently.

Transfer soup to a blender (you may want to do this in 2 parts for safety) and add last cup of broth. Blend until completely smooth. Alternately you can use a stick blender or food processor, but the results will not be as smooth. Taste and add balsamic vinegar if you like. Adjust salt and pepper to your liking and blend to incorporate.

Serve hot.
