- 1 cup dried green lentils
- 2 onion, chopped
- 3 clove garlic, minced
- 4 carrots, diced
- 5 celery, diced
- 6 bell pepper, diced
- 7 tomato paste
- 8 vegetable broth or bouillon cube

Sort through the dried green lentils and pick out any debris. Rinse them thoroughly under running water.
In a large pot, sauté the onion and garlic until fragrant and translucent. Add the carrots and celery, and cook for another 5 minutes.
- Stir in the tomato paste, vegetable broth or bouillon cube, and herbs (parsley, thyme, and bay leaf).
- Layer the soaked and drained lentils over the veggies.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let it simmer for about 30-45 minutes, until the lentils are tender and the flavors have melded together.
- If the soup is too thick, you can add more vegetable broth or water to thin it out.
- Once the lentils are done, remove the bay leaf and blend the soup until smooth with an immersion blender or transfer it to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Serve hot with some fresh parsley or cilantro as garnish if desired. This hearty and nutritious lentil soup is perfect for chilly days, and it's also vegan, gluten-free, and packed with protein and fiber from the lentils. Enjoy! Let me know how it turns out for you.
