Alton Brown's Lentil Soup. This soup is awesome - my husband and I love it! Unfortunately, the calorie counter website keeps pulling up chicken broth instead of veggie broth when calculating calories for this recipe - calories and fat are actually lower than what is listed.

Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Soup

3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 quarts vegetable broth
1 pound lentils
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup carrot, chopped
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1/2 teaspoon coriander seed, ground
1/2 teaspoon cumin seed, ground
1/2 teaspoon pepper, ground

Recipe Directions for Lentil Soup

  1. Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat.

  2. Once hot, add the onion, carrot, celery, and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes.

  3. Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin and pepper and stir to combine.

  4. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil.

  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35 to 40 minutes.

  6. Using a stick blender, puree to your preferred consistency.

  7. Serve Immediately.
