Vegan Spinach & Lentil Soup.

High Protein, vegan & healthy!

This recipe is a favourite of mine. I love to make a big batch on a Sunday and freeze some for my lunches during the week, its so filling and full of protein so great for all you fitness addicts like me.

 

Ingredients –

1 large onion

3 carrots

4 garlic cloves

2 cups of dry lentils – Green or Brown, I prefer to use green.

10 fresh chopped tomatoes

3 sweet potatoes

4 cups of vegetable broth

2 cups water

5 oz Spinach

1 ½ tsp cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

1.4 tsp rock salt

1 tbsp olive oil

 

Directions –

Rinse lentils.

Chop onion, carrots, tomatoes and sweet potatoes.

Mince garlic and sauté the garlic and onions in olive oil until tender.

Add broth, water, tomatoes, lentils, garlic, onion, carrot and sweet potatoes into a large stockpot.

Add in your cumin and paprika and bring to a boil.

Boil until the carrots and potatoes are tender then reduce heat, cover over with a lid and leave to simmer for about 30 minutes.

While this is simmering, chop up your spinach.

Add the chopped spinach & salt just 5 minutes before the end.
