Fifty Fit Amazing’s Easy Vegan Lentil Soup

Hey Amazing peeps!  Over the weekend I tried the most wonderful vegan lentil soup at a restaurant here in Las Vegas.  It inspired me to create my own!  As much as I loved it I am always suspicious of the ingredients in restaurant dishes.  My guess is this delicious soup had plenty of oil, salt, MSG, and other unmentionables I don’t want to put in my body.  I went to the drawing board and came up with this easy vegan lentil soup recipe I hope you enjoy.  It is extra thick and hearty, so if you like a thinner soup, add extra vegetable broth.  To make it easy, I used the frozen brown rice you can find just about anywhere these days.  If you want to go the long route, feel free to steam up about 2 cups.  Makes a huge pot so may want to freeze a few portions for a rainy day.  Link included for Lentils I love!

  • 3 Carrots diced
  • 1 Med. Onion
  • 4 Cloves Garlic chopped
  • 1/2 TSP Himalayan Salt
  • 1 TSP Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 1 TSP Turmeric
  • 1 TBSN Red Pepper Flakes (if you like it spicy, otherwise omit)

  1. In a large pot, add and heat a few tablespoons of veggie broth until hot.  Add in onions, garlic and carrots.  Cook until onions are tender.
  2. Add in Lentils, 6 Cups Veggie Broth, Tomatoes, turmeric, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.  Bring to a boil.  Once boiling, bring to a simmer for 45 minutes or until carrots and lentils are tender.
