Servings 6


  • Dutch Oven, or heavy lidded pot


  • 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.
