Afia Vegan Lentil Soup

 

When the weather gets chilly, it's easy to want to cozy up with a warm cup of soup.  Give Afia's vegan lentil soup a try - it's nutritious and wonderfully flavorful.

 

INGREDIENTS

6 cups vegetable broth (or we used a 32 oz carton of vegetable broth with 2 cups of filtered water)

1 cup lentils

3 bay leaves 

4 carrots, sliced

3 rubs of celery, sliced

2 large potatoes, cut into small chunks

1/2 onion, chopped

Sea salt & pepper, to taste

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Garnish: Lemon & chopped parsley

Add the carrots, celery, onion, and bay leaf to a large soup pot and sautee until softened or translucent.  Add the bay leaf, potatoes, and lentils.  Pour in the broth and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, allow to simmer until the lentils and potatoes are soft. Serve with lemon juice and Afia’s Traditional, Spicy or Garlic Herb Falafel.
