Red Lentil Soup

Red lentils are fast cooking legumes making this a perfect summer, or after work meal.  You can make it with ghee or if vegan, another oil of choice. 


1 cup red lentils

2-3 cups water (2 if you prefer a thicker soup)

1 10 oz can of diced tomatoes

2-3 Tbsps of grated, fresh ginger

1 Tbsp oil

dash of ground cloves

salt to taste


Saute the oil, ginger and cloves together.  Add the lentils to the saute.  Slowly add water, 1/2 cup at a time so as to gauge the consistency of your soup.  Add the can of tomatoes.  Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 30-40 minutes.  Keep adding the water until you like the consistency. 

Serve over rice or quinoa!  Enjoy!
