Easy Lentil Potato Soup Recipe

INGREDIENTS
  1.  2 tbsp vegetable oil
  2.  3 cloves garlic — minced
  3.  1/4 cup diced onion
  4.  1 carrot, large — 3 - 4 oz
  5.  2 tbsp tomato paste
  6.  1/4 cup tomato sauce — optional
  7.  1 1/4 cups lentils — I used a mix of green, red split and black lentils, but green only work great.
  8.  12 oz potatoes — cut into bite sized pieces
  9.  2 tsp salt
  10.  1/4 tsp black pepper
  11.  1/4 tsp thyme
  12.  1/2 tsp oregano
  13.  4-5 cups water

INSTRUCTIONS
  • 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. 
  • 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.
