Smoky Spicy Brown Lentil Soup
This Post has 1 Comment
Because brown lentils (also called green lentils by some) already have a subtle smokiness, the smoked paprika brings it out even more. My favorite legume, brown lentils are versatile, delicious, and nutritious and lend themselves to hearty soups, stews, spreads, and loaves.
1 tablespoon olive oil or water for sautéing
1 large yellow onion, chopped
3 to 5 garlic cloves, minced
2 large carrots, chopped
1 bunch chard, chopped
3 yellow potatoes, peeled (optional) and cubed
Tip from The Compassionate Cook: If the stem/rib of the chard is too thick or tough, just pull the leaves away for chopping and compost the ribs.
Oil-free, if sautéing in water; wheat- and gluten-free; soy-free
