Low-fat, High-protien and fiber soup, that is super yummy! It can be made fully vegetarian by using veggie broth instead of chicken broth, but I would suggest adding some fresh lemon juice to brighten the flavor if you do that.

Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Vegetable Soup

1/2 lb dry lentils
1 cup chopped shallots
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried thyme
5 stalks celery, diced
3 carrots, diced
2 tbsp tomato Paste
14 oz diced tomatoes
32 oz low sodium chicken Broth

  1. In a heat-safe bowl, cover the lentils with boiling water and let sit for 15 minutes.
