A blend of herbs, spices, porcini mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, our soup base seasoning adds rich, savory flavors to this comforting lentil soup.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups brown lentils
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded and diced
  • 1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbs. soup base seasoning
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 4 oz. baby spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. dry sherry
  • 2-oz. piece Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Directions:

Pick over the lentils and discard any misshapen lentils and grit. Rinse well and drain.

In a large pot over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, carrot and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes.

Stir in 6 cups water, the lentils, tomatoes, soup base seasoning, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until the lentils are very tender, about 20 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, uncovered, until the spinach is just wilted, about 2 minutes. Stir in the sherry.

Ladle the soup into warmed bowls and use a vegetable peeler to garnish the soup with shavings of the cheese. Serve immediately. Serves 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty soup I first tried this soup at my friend's house. She made it for the first time. The taste was great, but the consistency was very very thick. She followed the recipe exactly. When I made it I added more water to the soup and more smoked paprika and cumin, since I diluted the taste with water. I also omitted the dry sherry. The soup turned out great! Very tasty! I now make it often, since it's also very easy to make.
