Method

  1. In a large sized pot, heat up the olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chopped oniond, carrots, celery, potatoes and a pinch of salt. Cook and stir often, until the vegetables has softened and the onions are turning translucent, about 10 minutes.

  3. Pour in the tin of tomatoes, vegetable broth and water.
  4. Raise heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to boil. Cover the pot with a lid, leaving some gap for steam to escape. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes, and then add the sprouted lentils. Continue simmering, uncovered, for 10 - 20 minutes until all vegetables are cooked.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Remove the pot from the heat. Garish bowls of soup with chopped parsley or optional grated parmesan.

    *Optional to use any seasonal vegetables and to add extra pasta.
