Almost Vegan Lentil Soup

I love this soup! It's light but yet filling.

My husband who isn't a big soup guy actually gave this 2 thumbs up!

Almost Vegan Lentil Soup

4 cups vegetable stock
1 cup dry lentils
1 cup dry pasta ( I used whole wheat mini penne)
1 tbs olive oil
1 carrot peeled and diced
1 celery stalk diced
1 diced yellow onion
1 medium sized tomato diced
2 cloves of garlic
1 bay leaf
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
freshly grated Parmesan cheese for topping


In a large pot or dutch oven, over medium heat add oil and saute onions, carrots, celery  tomato, and garlic  until tomato starts to break down.

Add in vegetable stock, bay leaf, and lentils. Bring up to a boil then lower the heat to med/low and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Add in your pasta and cook for about 15 more minutes when the pasta is al dente it's done!

Add in your balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper to taste.

Enjoy it with or with out freshly grated Parmesan cheese
