Lentil soup is a classic vegetarian soup recipe. It’s hearty, healthy, delightfully filling (with plant-based protein), and warming on those cold, wintery days. While there are many variations of lentil soup, you can’t go wrong with a simple, Mediterranean version.

I always love an easy, one-pot soup recipe like this as it’s easy to meal prep and reheat. It’s perfect for lunch or dinner and it’s naturally gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free, making it perfect for almost all your guests!

Great soup! I light a candle while I'm slicing onions, it burns off the methane that makes your eyes water.

Pink Llama says:

If you cut onions from root to stem it gives off less of those tear-making fumes.

szaki says:

I made the soup, it's good, but too much tomato for the soup, taste like tomato soup!
Used a hole canned of 28 oz diced tomato, I think that's what she recommended?

karen richardson says:

I made this tonight and it was very good even with the substitutions I had to make. Only had a 15 oz can of the fire roasted tomatoes and used a box of unsalted chicken stock. No lemon so I used about 2 tbls red wine vinegar.

Ghetto Mamma says:

Now I know how to cut kale thanx 😉

D M says:

By the way, I took an hour and a half to cook the lentils because of the high elevation!

D M says:

Excellent recipe, just made it to day in anticipation of snowy conditions in Colorado, family loves it, thank you.
