A tasty and nutritious brothy soup, with a garlic boost perfect for under-the-weather days. We make a lot of lentil soup, this is a combination of some of our favourites. The list of ingredients may look a little long, but it comes together fairly quickly, chopping and cooking as you go and then leaving to simmer.

Directions

  1. Warm the oil in a large soup pot or dutch oven. Add in the veg, starting with the onion, then celery, then carrot. You can chop and add to the pot as you go.
  2. Once the onion is nicely cooked and translucent, add the garlic, bay leaves and the herbs/spices, (thyme, sage, paprika, turmeric, fenugreek if using). Saute a few minutes.
  3. Add in the lentils and rice, leave for a few more minutes, stirring frequently to avoid sticking. After a few minutes, add in the broth and water. Bring to a boil then cover and reduce heat. Leave to simmer for about 30 minutes.
  4. By now the rice and lentils should be close to done, add in the soy, vinegar and kale. Cook for another 15 minutes or so. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Delicious! The only thing I changed was that once I added the kale, I only cooked it maybe 5 minutes. It wilted & softened just the way we like it. Made for Veggie Swap VIP 9/12!
