Lentil Vegetable Soup

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 2 hours


By Heather McDougall
This lentil vegetable soup is a favorite of my boys and so easy to make. I think one of the reasons they like it, is because I chop all of the vegetables really small. And, like most of the soups I make, if you don't have an ingredient, such as carrot or spinach, leave it out or substitute another favorite ingredient.


  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 6 small white potatoes, finely chopped
  • 16 ounce bag brown lentils
  • 15.5 ounce can fire roasted tomatoes, diced
  • 8 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1-2 cups finely chopped spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine all ingredients, except the spinach, and cook on low for 2 hours. Add the spinach about 5 minutes before the soup is done. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
