Veggie & lentil soup recipe
2 large garlic cloves, crushed
3 quarts grass-fed bone broth
2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
¾ cup French/green lentils (soak for a few hours before cooking)
3 large carrots, thinly sliced
1 medium-sized sweet potato, cut into small cubes with skin on
3 large celery stalks, thinly sliced
1 leek, thinly sliced
1 brown onion, thinly sliced and diced
1 heaping tbsp. raw / extra virgin / cold-pressed coconut oil
Seasoning to taste:
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
A sprinkle of ground turmeric or a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Garnish as desired:
Organic and raw kraut
Fresh cilantro leaves
Large soup pot
Large chef's knife
Large cutting board
Wooden spoon for stirring
In a large soup pot, sauté the veggies in coconut oil, sea salt, and pepper for around 5 minutes, stirring every so often.
Add the onion and ginger then stir regularly for a few more minutes. As soon as the veggies soften a little, add the broth and bring to a boil with the lentils. Reduce the heat and simmer gently.
To tell if the soup is ready, check whether the veggies are soft and the lentils fully cooked. The cooking time should be approximately 25 minutes.
Garnish your soup with extra sea salt and pepper, fresh lemon juice, a big spoonful of kraut, and a handful of cilantro leaves. ENJOY!
