– 2 tbsp vegetable oil – 3 cloves garlic — minced – 1/4 cup diced onion – 1 carrot, large — 3 - 4 oz – 2 tbsp tomato paste – 1/4 cup tomato sauce — optional – 1 1/4 cups lentils — I used a mix of green, red split and black lentils, but green only work great. – 12 oz potatoes — cut into bite sized pieces – 2 tsp salt – 1/4 tsp black pepper – 1/4 tsp thyme – 1/2 tsp oregano – 4-5 cups water

Step 1

Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add onion and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic and carrots. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, to prevent burning.

Step 2

Add in the tomato paste, tomato sauce and lentils. Cook for 1 minute. Add potatoes. Pour 4 cups of water on top. Add salt, pepper, thyme and oregano. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 25-35 minutes, until the lentils are cooked and potatoes are tender.

Step 3

Taste the soup and add more salt and pepper if needed. Serve warm.
