I love soup or stews this time of year and they are easy to make – all in one pot!
My red lentil soup (or stew) is really delicious, and filling, but still low calorie, fiber-rich and blood sugar friendly, making it good for your waistline as well.
Carina’s Red Lentil Soup ( 4 portions)
- 1 yellow onion
- 2- 4 cloves of garlic
- 2 carrots (peel)
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 chili
- 500 grams ( 2 cans) crushed tomatoes
- 1 liter ( 3 1/2 cups) vegetable stock
- 2 dl. ( 1 cup) dry red lentils
How to: Finely chop the onion, carrots, celery, chili and garlic. Sautee in olive oil until soft. Add the crushed tomatoes, stock and lentils. Cook until tender adding more water if needed. Season to taste. The lentils need at least 30 min. to cook. You do not have to pre-soak them. Enjoy!
Tip! This soup/stew tastes really great the next day so you can make a large batch if you like. It is also great to freeze so you have a healthy meal ready in no time:)
