VERY BEST LENTIL SOUP | vegetarian one-pot lentil soup recipe

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Lentil soup is a classic vegetarian soup recipe. It’s hearty, healthy, delightfully filling (with plant-based protein), and warming on those cold, wintery days. While there are many variations of lentil soup, you can’t go wrong with a simple, Mediterranean version.

I always love an easy, one-pot soup recipe like this as it’s easy to meal prep and reheat. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner and it’s naturally gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free, making it perfect for almost all your guests!

Hi, I think we all struggle with onions…I usually keep a few in the fridge at all times…but what I’ve found really helps is to place your unpeeled onion in the freezer for 10 mins before peeling and dicing.

I have UBER sensitive eyes as well- the pro men with goggles is you don’t realize how much we look down at the peripheral vision. With goggles you have to look straight down. Ouch.

You're the best Lisa @downshiftology. Thank you. 💕

Scot Hooser says:

Run cold water in the sink and look at it while chopping the onion, this will truly help. Chew on a piece of cardboard while chopping, this too helps. Don’t cut off the root end until you are through chopping. The cutting action punctures the cells, releasing the tear causing agents.

Sonyia Douglas says:

I have a ceiling fan in my kitchen and turn it on when chopping onions. It blows the fumes down and away and works great to prevent tears. If you don’t have a ceiling fan you can put a fan to one side to blow the fumes away.

Jethro Beaudine says:

White vinegar on the cutting board when slicing the onion. It doesnt change the taste of the recipe. We use this in "Gods Love We Deliver" kitchen.

I wear ski goggles…very comfortable.

Robin Saxophone says:

Light a candle near the onion while you cut it. It really works.

Soups cannot be healthy. Soups can be healthful, but not healthy. Only living things can be healthy!
