Lemon Ginger Red Lentil Soup

Lemon Ginger Red Lentil Soup

This is one of my all time favourite soup recipes!  It is so hearty that it can be consumed as a meal or in a smaller portion as a starter.  Be sure to taste it before serving in case it needs some more lemon juice or ginger to taste.


Serves: 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes


1 ½ L of chicken or vegetable broth (ready made or homemade)
1 cup red lentils (dried)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup green beans, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil


1. Sweat onion and garlic in olive oil until transparent.
2. Add green beans, red pepper and cook for a couple minutes until softened.  Add mushrooms and heat for about 2 minutes until softened.
3. Add lemon juice to vegetables.
4. Add vegetable stock, lentils and ginger to pot.

Enjoy and season with fresh cilantro if desired~
