Spinach-Lentil Soup, Anyone?

In keeping with the Choosing Home Blog’s theme this week on easy lunch ideas, I thought I’d share one that’s good-for-you and cheap as well!

This one comes from Katie (mom of 12). I’ve had it for a couple of years now…YUM. Ideal for lunch.

Spinach-Lentil Soup

  • One bag of lentils
  • One bunch of spinach, chopped 
  • One to two chopped onions
  • One tsp minced garlic  
  • 2 TB lemon juice
  • Cheese

Saute the onion and garlic until tender. Add lentils and cover with water (a lot of water, they grow). Boil for at least an hour until lentils are tender. Add lemon juice and spinach, salt and pepper to taste. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Serve with cheddar cheese on bottom of bowl…spoon hot soup over and the cheese melts. Can I say YUM one last time?

Yum!

  1. Sounds yummy, but do the kids really go for the green stuff? My kids like ham and lentil soup. I’ll try the spinach, but I might have to add some ham to theirs. :)

  2. This is a good recipe. Lentils and spinach are a very healthy combination. I like my lentils still ‘al dente’ but do mash a few to make a soup thicker. Yet, with the addition of the cheese in this recipe, you have an even more hearty soup and you won’t need to mash the lentils up.
