Ingredients

  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (or sub water for plant-based diet)
  • 5 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 small head of green cabbage, chopped
  • 10 oz frozen green beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 (15 oz can) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Real Salt *
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • Fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large pot saute the garlic and onion in coconut oil or water until onion is translucent (3-5 minutes)
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well
  3. Allow to simmer on low heat 30-45 minutes
  4. Garnish with parsley and serve

Notes

  • This can also be made in the crockpot, simply throw all the ingredients in and cook for 4-6 hours.
  • Although I typically think of garnish as an optional ingredient, the fresh parsley in this soup really does make it taste extra delicious.
  • To make this soup strictly Paleo; leave out the lentils
