It’s winter time, which means it’s time to make soup!
I love making soup during the winter months, it warms the entire house with a winter smell that brings in the feel of winter we wait for all year round.
I love to make soup out of almost every vegetable, grain, or legume. Aside from it being delicious, soup it’s extremely nutritious.
This recipe of lentil soup I make with only orange lentils, I use a technique where I grate carrots and cook them for a couple of minutes in boiling water with garlic and then cook the lentils in that water. It gives a great flavor to the water, and also adds to the color of the soup.
This soup is so simple, which makes it something you can make in no time, you don’t need a blender, or food processor. In this recipe I simply cook all the ingredients together and the lentils break up on there own. Which also brings a nice chunky like texture to the soup.
You can choose whichever garnish you wish for soups, in this lentil soup I added garlic croutons, and diced ham that I quickly sautéed in olive oil.
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
