Ingredients
  

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups diced carrots  3 medium
  • 1 1/2 cups diced yellow onions  1 medium
  • 3-4 diced yukon gold potatoes
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 quarts vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/4 cups dried lentils rinsed and picked over
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups diced zucchini 1 medium
  • 2 cups packed chopped kale or spinach
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions
 

  • Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Sautee carrots, potatoes and onions for 2 minutes, then add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Pour in broth and tomatoes. Add lentils, basil, oregano, thyme, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add zucchini and kale, simmering for an additional 10 minutes. If using spinach, add it in the last 2 minutes.
  • Stir in lemon juice and add up to 1 cup of water to achieve the desired consistency, as lentils may absorb more broth as the soup rests.

Notes

  • Opt for brown or green lentils and adjust cooking time accordingly. Red lentils cook in half the time.
