This soup is quick and easy to prepare as lentils tend to cook more quickly than other beans. You can alter the look of this soup depending on your preference, since lentils come in a variety of colours – green, yellow, brown, or red. Cooked lentils are high in calcium, potassium, zinc, and iron. Makes 4-6 servings. Recipe from How it All Vegan, published by Arsenal Pulp Press.
In a large soup pot, sauté garlic, onions, and carrots in oil on medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Add the celery, stock, tomatoes, lentils, pepper, and cayenne and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender. Add pasta and simmer for 10 more minutes before serving.
