2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup onion
1/2 cup carrot
1/2 cup celery
2 teaspoons salt
1 pound lentils

2 quarts chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Lentil Soup

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

Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin and grains of paradise and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil.
