Recipe: Lentil Soup

lentil-soupDinner is served! Lentil soup is a healthy, easy dish to make. Bonus is that lentils are found all over the world! So wherever your travels take you, you’ll have a nutrient packed meal ready in 20 minutes.

1/2 lb. small potatoes boiled for 10 minutes, or until fork soft, drained and set aside.
Using same pot, water saute 1/2 medium size white onion, diced, with 3 cloves garlic, minced, and 1 carrot cut into rounds.
Add 1/2 teaspoon oregano and black pepper. Continue cooking on medium high heat for 2 minutes.
Add 20 oz cooked lentils (I found a jar of precooked lentils at the local Mexican tienda).
Turn heat down to medium until heated through, add potatoes-cut into bite size pieces-to soup and turn down to low.
Stir occasionally and served hot with crackers or bread and a green salad for a great vegan dinner!
