Lentil Soup

Another amazing Oh She Glows recipe!!   She made a Triple Lentil Recovery Soup that I'm in love with. I have barely changed it up but I did so I'm posting my recipe, mostly so I don't forget.

Lentil Soup

1 tsp grape seed oil
2 red onions, chopped (~2 cups)
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 heaping cup chopped celery
1/2 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
5-6.5 cups vegetable broth, depending on how thin/thick you want it
1 1/2 cup dry red lentils
1/2 cup dry hominy

1. In a large skillet or pot, add the oil and sauté the onion and garlic over low-medium heat for about 5 minutes.

2. Add in the celery and sauté another minute. Stir in the spices and cook for another couple minutes on low.

3. Now, rinse and drain the lentils and stir into skillet/pot. Add the broth and stir well. Increase heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, a simmer until thick and lentils are cooked, about 45 minutes to an hour. Watch closely and stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the pot. Add more broth to thin out if desired. Add salt and pepper to taste.
