READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 6-8




  • Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat.
  • When hot, add the onion, carrot, celery(if using soy chorizo sausage, add now) and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin, pepper and cardamom if using, and stir to combine.
  • Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until lentils are tender, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree to your preferred consistency(or put in batches into the blender and puree). Serve immediately. Enjoy!
  • Note: One reviewer said when serving, to add 1 tbls. of vinegar to the soup. I haven't tried this yet, but you might want to.
