French Carrot Lentil Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)
This French Carrot Lentil Soup (vegan, GF) is healthy, filling, and packed with tons of plant protein. Made with red lentils, carrots, onions, and french spices, this soup is easy to meal prep!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion sliced
- 4 stalks celery
- 6 carrots chopped
- 2 cups red lentils
- 10 cups Vegetable stock
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 tablespoon Herbes de Provance
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Fresh pepper to taste
- Coconut Cream or Cashew Cream to garnish
In a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over low heat. Add the onion and saute on low for 7 or 8 minutes until the onions begin to soften. Add the carrots, celery, onions, red lentils, bay leaves, Herbes De Provance, and Vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer the soup for 30 minutes until the red lentils are cooked through and the carrots soften.
Remove bay leaves, and with an immersion blender, blend the soup until it is completely smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, then puree small batches in a normal blender.
Serve warm with a dollop of coconut cream, cashew cream, or Craime Fraishe and a sprinkle of fresh thyme.
