Recipe Ingredients for Tomato, Lentil & Onion Soup

1 1/2 tsp oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 leek, white area chopped (no bulb or leaves)
1 cup lentils
2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin, ground
1 cracked black pepper to taste
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Recipe Directions for Tomato, Lentil & Onion Soup

  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large pot, add onion, cook 5 minutes.

  2. Add chopped leek, cook 2-3 minutes.

  3. Stir in lentils, cook 1-2 minutes.

  4. Stir in tomatoes, veg stock, all herbs and spices, cover and bring to a rapid boil for about 5 minutes.

  5. Turn down heat and simmer 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until lentils are soft.

  6. I set about 2/3 of the soup aside to cool down. Once cooled, process until smooth in a blender or food processor and return to the soup pot. For a more "liquidy" soup, process all, for more chunks, process less.

  7. Garnish with extra cilantro and enjoy!
