“I make this at least once a week come fall & winter for dinner and lunches. My carnivore husband LOVES it. Goes great with homemade bread too! If you are lucky enough to find grains of paradise, use them. I hear it really makes the soup. Never being able to find it myself, I just substitute regular pepper for it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the olive oil into a large pot and set over medium heat. Once heated, add the onion, celery, carrot and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, about 7 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 40-50 minutes.
  4. You can eat it as is (like I do), or use a stick blender to puree to your desired consistency.
