Simple Lentil Soup

30 mn

Serves 5

I love lentils, all of them!!! The red ones, beluga, french, split..... I used green french ones for this recipe. It is perfect for a light and healthy dinner! Also a winner on Meatless Mondays!


  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 shallot , minced
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 5-6 cups of veggie stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2-3 tbsp of olive oil


Sauté the carrots, celery, shallot and garlic with the olive oil in a large pot fro a few minutes. Add the lentil and bay leaf and stir to coat everything together! Add the stock, bring it to a boil. Lower it down to simmer, cover and cook for 25-30 minutes until lentils are cooked (soft but not mushy!)

I like my lentil soup clean and more like a stew so I do not mind if there is not too much liquid, feel free to add more stock depending on the consistency you want.
