‘Soup’er Recipe: Lentil Soup

posted in: 'Soup'er Recipes, Gluten Free | 7

I’m a soup lover and lentil soup is another delicious one to make. It is a great way to get lots of veggies and fibre all cooked together and served in a bowl. Ingredients in this recipe are naturally gluten free.


  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 3 cubed potatoes
  • 3 chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • pepper if you wish

Rinse and drain the lentils thoroughly.

Add all ingredients to a large pot, mix well, and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for at least 30 minutes or until carrots and potatoes are soft.

I like to blend about half the soup and mix with the remaining part to make a lumpy consistency. The choice is yours. Choose what you prefer – smooth, lumpy, chunky or soupy. If you like soupy you can add more liquid.

Delicious to eat on a really cold day. This soup also freezes well and I usually make a double batch so there is some to eat and some to freeze for later.

      We are having it tonight, always like my soup the second day. It is pouring of rain so we need some central heating for our body 🙂

    I agree with the others, it looks good, and will be trying it.

    Are you ready for a messy winter according to the weather forecast here later today.

      I’m having the soup tonight, perfect for a rainy day. The rain started here about 8 am this morning, and is getting heavier as the day goes on. It is supposed to be like this tomorrow and Wednesday as well, with snow arriving some time along the way too. We haven’t been going out anyways, but with this weather we wouldn’t go out anyway. Stay dry and warm.
