We had this yummy soup at a friends’ house a while back, and I had to get the recipe to share here! So yummy, and perfect for winter. 🙂

Lentil Soup

1 cup lentils (green)
5 cups water
2 Tbsp chicken boullion
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup ham, diced
1/2 cup carrots, sliced
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 large potato, diced (opt)

Bring water, seasonings and lentils to a boil and turn heat down and simmer for about 30 minutes. 20 minutes into the cooking, add veggies. When lentils are soft, add ham and simmer a few more minutes to warm it up.

Serve as soup, or cook until very thick and serve over rice.


This picture is the same recipe, I simply added some other beans to it. 🙂
