Recipe

Here is Danielle's 3 step, 3 ingredient, 1 pot lentil soup recipe:

I make sure I have a box of chicken broth, you can even use vegetable broth, to cook the lentils in for extra nutrition and flavor, make sure you pay attention to the sodium level and choose a less sodium option to stay heart healthy...

One package of mirepoix, which is a chopped up mix of fresh carrots, onions and celery...

And of course a bag of lentils, usually a 16 oz bag...

First, you'll want to sauté the mirepoix in any cooking medium you choose,

I always cook with the always famous extra-virgin olive oil which is also heart healthy...

Then when you have sautéed your carrots onions and celery mix, you'll want to add your broth and lentils.

Bring everything to a boil and then lower the heat, cover and simmer for at least 45 minutes letting the lentils expand and soften, stir periodically and add about 1.5 to 2 cups of water if needed for more of a smooth and soup-like texture...

When the time has passed and you achieved the right consistency, (pictured in pot) you may take a taste and season accordingly if you like, (pepper, garlic powder, tumeric, etc...for this dish is very customizable)...

Serve and Enjoy!
