INGREDIENTS:

3 large diced onions

2 crushed garlic cloves

5 large finely sliced carrots

2 diced celery sticks

1 sliced leek, the white part

1-2 chopped turnips

1 kilo dried, rinsed and cleaned lentils

2 liters vegetable stock or 3 vegetable stock cubes added to 8 cups water

2 tbsp. Provence herbs

1 bay leaf

2 tbsp. tomato paste

METHOD:

Sauté onions until translucent then add in garlic, celery, turnips and carrots. Add to your soup pot with your liquid, herbs and bring to a boil. Add in your lentils and cook for 2 hours, mixing occasionally to stop it from sticking to the bottom.

That’s it! My kids love this dish with warm baguettes and topped with shredded cheese or a dollop of sour cream. Hotdogs are nice for the kids as well, and this French dish traditionally served this way.

For my meat eating friends, chop a 500-gram side of smoked bacon before adding your onions to the sauté. Both versions are delicious!

Bon Appétit!
