Hearty Lentil Soup

This winter warmer is super easy to cook and is great if you are on a budget!


  • 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram
  • 3 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 cup lentils (rinsed and drained)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley
  • 1 16-ounce can tomatoes
  • Optional: crumbled goat cheese


  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot and sauté the onions and carrot for 3 to 5 minutes, until they are softened. Add dried herbs and sauté 1 minute. 
  2. Add stock, lentils, salt, parsley, and tomatoes and cook, covered, until lentils are tender, about 45 minutes.
  3. When it’s done, place in bowls and serve. 
  4. Optional: when serving, put 2 tablespoons of goat each in each bowl before adding the soup for a creamier version.
