Yummy soup yet so easy to throw together! Cook time is a guess since I live at high altitude and it takes forever for the lentils to break down. We really enjoyed this, even my 2 yr. old DD loved it! Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in soup pot over medium heat. Add onions and celery; cook until onions are translucent, about 4-6 minutes.
  2. Add bay leaf, cumin and garlic, cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add lentils and coat evenly with butter, cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add 6 cups broth. Bring to simmer and stir often so lentils don't scorch. Cook soup until lentils begin to dissolve and begin to look like a pureed soup. Add additional broth as needed to adjust consistency.
  4. Season to taste with fresh squeezed lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir in cilantro or parsley. Serve!

This was great! My wife and I really enjoyed it and plan on serving it at a dinner party. We'll make this a regular in our house.
