Recipe Directions for Lentil Soup

  1. NOTE: This recipe requires 8 Cups of water. I did 22 oz in the ingredients so it would come out to approximately the volume it should.

  2. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat.

  3. Add onions, carrots, and celery; cook and stir until onion is tender.

  4. Stir in garlic, bay leaf, oregano,cumin, and basil; cook for 2 minutes.

  5. Stir in lentils, and add 8 Cups of water, and tomatoes.

  6. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for at least 1 hour.

  7. When ready to serve stir in spinach, and cook until it wilts.

  8. Stir in vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper, and more vinegar if desired.
