This red lentil soup is creamy, filling, and absolutely delish. It's hearty, but not overbearingly so because it's balanced with fresh cilantro. Simmered red lentils bring the protein that keeps you feeling full and satisfied and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice right before serving really complements the coriander.

Red Lentil Soup With Fresh Cilantro and Lemon [Vegan]

Serves

4-6

Ingredients

  • 6 cups no salt added or low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion (1 large onion)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2-2 cups chopped carrots, halved lengthwise and sliced crosswise
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Fresh lemon juice

Preparation

  1. In a medium saucepan, add 6 cups of water, stir in bouillon or add vegetable stock if using that instead.
  2. Add chopped onion, garlic, coriander, paprika and fresh ground pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally to break up any chunky seasonings. Boil gently uncovered for five minutes.
  3. Add red lentils, reduce to simmer, and cook uncovered for 15 minutes. Add chopped carrot, cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes until lentils are thoroughly cooked and soup is thickened. Stir often to prevent sticking to the bottom of your pan.
  4. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and fresh lemon.
