Quick & Easy Veggie Lentil Soup

Quick & Easy Veggie Lentil Soup by Raia's Recipes

During these blustery winter days soup has become my go to dinner. And since going grain-free, peas and lentils (twinkles, as my 3-year calls them) have become staples in our house.

So, when I saw this soup over at Thank Your Body, I knew it was a must try recipe. After a few tweaks, it was a hit! Yes, even my kids love it - twinkles and all.  ; )

{Quick & Easy Veggie Lentil Soup}
Free of grain, gluten, eggs, & sugar, with dairy-free option.
Modified from Dina-Marie’s recipe at Thank Your Body.

2 T. olive, coconut oil, or ghee
1/2 large yellow onion, diced
4 large carrots, diced (about 2 c.)
2 c. sprouted lentils (here's how to sprout them...)
1 1/2 qt. chicken, beef, or veggie stock (or enough to cover)
1 c. frozen peas
1 heaping T. minced garlic
1/2 t. cumin
2 T. parsley
salt & pepper, to taste
1/4 c. sour cream (optional)

In large saucepan, heat oil or ghee over medium heat. Add onions and saute until translucent. Add carrots and lentils and cover with stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until carrots are fork-tender (about 20 minutes). Stir in remaining ingredients.
