This is a pretty tasty lentil soup recipe. This recipe was made with ingredients left over in the fridge. We had some celery, carrots and other veggies that were ripe to use, this soup made for a tasty dinner.
The original recipe was followed for the most part. We started by chopping onions and celery and carrots and sauteing them in olive oil. Make sure you turn on the correct burner*. After sauteing for about 5 to 10 minutes, 1 cup of rinsed French lentils was added. (The original recipe doesn’t say which lentils kind of lentils were used). I decided to skip the rice. 4 cups of water was added, brought to a boil and covered to simmer until lentils are cooked. Oregano, basil, thyme and parsley, ground black pepper, and Himalayan red sea salt were added to spice it up a bit
