Pure & Simple Lentil Soup *

This lentil soup is so simple to make, doesn’t require a lot of prep-work, includes minimal ingredients……..but is oh-so-tasty! And you can use your favorite type of lentil, or whatever lentils you have on hand – though cooking time may vary.

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 cup lentils (any kind of lentil you choose, I like to use red most of the time…unless I’m out)
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of cayenne, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 to 4 Tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
  • sour cream, for garnish
  • lemon zest, for garnish

Add chicken broth to a 2-quart (or larger) saucepan with onion and garlic powder. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Add lentils, stir to combine, and bring back to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked through and very tender.

Add the paprika and cayenne; season to taste with salt and lemon juice.

Garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of lemon zest.

Serves 4.
