A nice healthy soup. Inexpensive to make, too.

Top Review by Slocan cook

This soup was very good with the lentil split pea combination giving it a nice texture that made the soup delicious to eat for dinner tonight with my rye crackers that go well with this soup. I did not add the cider vinegar because I am very sensitive to the acid. I think it tastes just wonderful without adding anything extra to the mixture. A very good soup for a fall lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil.
  2. Saute the onions, celery and garlic until starting to soften.
  3. Add carrots and broth to the pot.
  4. Add the rinsed lentils, split peas, black pepper, thyme and salt to the pot.
  5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat.
  6. Cover pot and simmer for 1 hour.
  7. ***If desired, use an immersion blender and quickly "whiz" for just a second or two. This gives it a thicker, creamier texture.
  8. Add the tomatoes, vegetable juice, sugar and cider vinegar.
  9. Simmer for another 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  10. At this time, taste and season with more salt, if necessary.
