This French Lentil Soup is thick and could be considered a stew. All I know, is I made a big pot, and 6 small children ate it all. They loved it.
Recipe type: Soup or Stew
Cuisine: Dinner, Lunch, or side dish
Serves: 6 to 8
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • ½ Large onion chopped
  • 3 stalks celery diced
  • 4 small red potatoes diced
  • 1 cup of left over roasted vegetables, or you can use any fresh that you have left hanging around in your veggie draw.
  • 4 cups Left over broth from Roast Beef, or out of a carton.
  • I cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup uncooked French Lentils
  • 2 fresh tomatoes chopped
  • ½ bag of frozen spinach chopped
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  1. Saute all the fresh vegetables in the butter. Once you have them all added, add the herbs, then the broth and left over roasted vegetables. Bring to a boil, then stir in the French lentils. Cook until it all is tender and the lentils are done.
  2. I serve with a dollop of sour cream on top. Also for those that like meat, you can stir in the left over Roast beef.
  3. Very good and hardy. Nice for a fall or winter day.
