A Lovely Lentil Soup

Give this soup a try; we have a heavy hunch that if you do, it’ll become a go to recipe for you.


  • 1 cup lentils
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 large potato, diced
  • ½ bunch Swiss chard, kale, or endive coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 cup to a ¼ cup or more freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • In a pan start sautéing onions in oil until golden brown. The longer they go, the more flavor.
  • Now sort lentils and add to a stock pot; add water, cover, bring to a boil and then simmer until almost tender (approximately 15-20 minutes).
  • Add diced potatoes to lentils; boil for 10 minutes. Add more water if necessary.
  • Add salt and pepper to lentil pot to taste.
  • Add chopped greens of choice to lentil mixture and cook for another 5 or so minutes.
  • Now add the onions and oil.
  • Add lemon juice.
  • Taste and adjust lemon juice and salt and pepper to your liking.

Soup freezes well.
