Yes, it April and I have another soup recipe… but hey, it’s always soup season on our homestead!  This red lentil ginger soup is a lighter soup recipe made without oil or coconut milk, and has loads of flavorful spices and plant-based protein.  I absolutely love red lentils, and they are perfect blended up in this creamy soup. 
 
You can blend this soup with a regular blender, or a hand immersion blender. I bought an immersion blender 15 years ago and it’s going strong – highly recommend one for all your soup lovers out there!

Meal Prep Red Lentil Soup Recipes For the Win!

This red lentil ginger soup is the perfect recipe for homemade meal prep.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  I love the convenience of cooking once on the weekend and being able to enjoy good homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. There’s a whole section of TheHerbeevore.com dedicated to my favorite tried & true meal prep recipes

With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of recipes ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later!  I also made a list of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon that I use weekly. They make cooking easy.

What’s In This Lentil Ginger Soup Recipe?

I get fresh produce from my garden and from Misfits Market– they sell fantastic fruit, vegetables, & pantry staples at a discounted price. We get Misfit boxes every other week and love picking out favorite produce for delivery. Get $10 off your first box here!

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Ginger: I love adding fresh ginger to my dishes, or this great ground ginger to my curries – the ginger gives it a nice kick and spicy flavor.
  • Red Lentils: one of my favorite legumes to stock up on! I always keep a few lbs of these on hand, they are great to throw into soups like this as they dissolve and you can’t even tell they are there.
  • Reduced Sodium Vegetable Stock or Bouillon: I love this low sodium vegetable base for my recipes because it has a great flavor and is lower in sodium. I only develop my recipes with low sodium ingredients so the ingredients shine. 
  • Diced Tomatoes:  I only use no salt added diced tomatoes, these boxed tomatoes are really great to stock up on!  I like boxed tomatoes better because they are BPA free and more eco-friendly than aluminum cans.
  • Turmeric – a staple in our spice cabinet!  I try to add a teaspoon of turmeric into soups, stews, and rice dishes too.
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! if you don’t like spice, you can absolutely skip them in this recipe.
  • Smoked Paprika: give an additional depth of flavor to this soup.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
