Lentil Soup

This is one of those one-pot meals. I like using red lentils for a quick warm soup dinner because they cook really fast! But I’ve also made this with dal.

Total time: 40 min. Makes dinner for 4-5 people.

Materials: Soup pot.


  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • Bunch of beet greens, collard greens, or another green
  • Turmeric, cumin, ginger, salt, and pepper to taste

  3. Add onion and chopped carrots to the lentils with more spices if needed. Cook about 10 minutes.
  4. Chop greens and add to lentil soup. Cook about 10 more minutes.
