This is one of my favorite soups. It can be made in a matter of minutes as red lentils cook quickly and don’t require any soaking! It has a rich delicious flavor, a bit like a golden split pea soup.


  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 vegetable broth cube
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 large carrots, cut in bite-sized chunks
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in bottom of soup pot and cook onion over medium heat until transluscent – about 3 minutes.

  2. Add lentils, vegetable broth, carrots, salt and pepper and cook for 20 minutes.

  3. If you would like the thin the soup, just add more water.

That’s it. Eat….Yum!!
