Armenian Lentil Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Enjolinfam

From Neva & Jim Brackett's 7 Secrets Cookbook. Makes a very healthy meal that's delicious! Spinach and tomatoes are added after the cooking is completed to keep their distinct green and red color, and give the soup eye appeal. I usually freeze half of this recipe to feed my family of four again later.

Excellent soup. Be sure to add plenty of Genger

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in kettle except spinach and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or until lentils are tender.
  2. Add spinach and simmer 1 minute. Add tomatoes just before serving.
  3. Leftovers can easily be frozen for another meal. I usually just freeze the soup in a ziplock freezer bag. Take it out the day before and put it in the fridge to thaw. Then reheat over the stove in a pot.
