Mediterranean Lentil Soup from @TinaKashian1

Hello from TINA KASHIAN! The cold weather is far from over and soup is one of my favorite comfort foods. I’m sharing a recipe for Mediterranean lentil soup that I remember my own mother preparing on cold days. This recipe adds some spinach to make it extra healthy.


 

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 diced onion

2 large carrots, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

2 cloves minced garlic

½ teaspoon cumin

½ teaspoon dried thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup brown lentils

6 cups chicken broth

2 ounces tomato sauce

1 cup fresh spinach


 Directions:

In a large pot, add the olive oil, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic and sauté over medium heat for 12-13 minutes. Stir often. Add cumin and cook for an additional minute.
