Soups are cost-effective, low-maintenance (they’re the original one-pot meals, after all), and they feed a crowd. This lentil soup pulses with flavour, thanks to chicken broth, garlic, onion and carrots, tops and all.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. On a work surface, cut the carrots into thin slices and finely chop the carrot greens. Set them aside separately.
  2. In a large pot over medium heat, soften the onion and garlic in the oil. Add the carrot slices and cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add the broth and lentils. Bring to a boil. Cover and let simmer for 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender.
  3. Add the chopped carrot greens and cook for 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning.

Note

For this recipe we used an entire bunch of carrots, including the greens. If carrot greens are unavailable, use finely chopped parsley or lettuce.
