Sunday Supper Club: Most Basic-est Lentil Soup

While we were out at The Ranch we stopped by a farmers’ market.  We had a full kitchen in our room and really wanted lentil soup.  I had packed olive oil, but nothing else pertaining to lentil soup (or any soup for that matter).  We bought the most basic stuff from the market and had absolutely no seasonings other than salt and pepper – the soup turned out really beautifully and was a nice reminder that sometimes less is more.

1 onion, diced

Olive oil

2 carrots, diced

2 celery stalks, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup dry lentils

4 ish  cups broth

1/4 c olive oil

salt, pepper and whatever other spices you like

Brown the onions, then add the carrots and celery.  Sautee 3-4 min.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer covered until lentils are soft (about 40 min).  Finish with about 1/4 cup of olive oil.
