Lentil Soup

This is something you can just throw together, and it's super easy :-)


  • 1 lb dry lentils
  • 4 cups stock* (32 oz)
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb cooked meat (I used a couple chicken breasts; you can add stew meat, sausage, turkey, ground meat, or you can skip it and add more veggies)
  • 2 cups chopped carrots (I just chopped up some baby carrots)
  • salt, pepper to taste (plus any other spices you like; I also added some rosemary)
*I used chicken stock, but you can use vegetable, beef, or whatever you have, depending on what you're adding in


  • In a large pot, heat olive oil and cook onion and garlic until tender and translucent
  • Add stock, water, spices, and rinsed lentils; bring to a boil.  Cover and turn down heat; simmer for 15 mins
  • Add chicken, carrots, and any other veggies you like.  Cook until carrots are tender and lentils are plump; approximately 10 more minutes
You're done!!

  1. I saw your blog on the Funky Food blog. My son has around 40 food allergies. Hope you don't mind if I follow your blog. I'm always looking for new ideas and recipes that will fit our narrow food list.


Thank you for reading!! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
