Lentil Vegetable Soup

Ingredients (serves 4)

1 ½ cups red lentils

1 tsp. turmeric powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper      

1 Tbsp. cumin powder

1 heaped tsp. oregano

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 carrots, diced

2 celery sticks, diced

1 onion, diced

5 cups water

Sliced spring onions for garnish, optional


Clean lentils by discarding any moldy beans or small rocks, then rinse until the dirty water runs clear. In a clean bowl, add lentils and cover with filtered water; soak overnight.

Rinse and drain lentils. In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for about 20-25 minutes or until lentils are tender. While the lentils are cooking, keep the saucepan partially covered and stir occasionally. Enjoy!
