Ingredients
  • 2.5 cup red split lentils
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 russet style potato or 2-4 smaller red potatoes, diced
  • 3-4 chopped carrots
  • 2 small white onions or 1 large
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 veggie bouillon (optional)
  • ΒΌ cup tomato paste
  • 1 TBS Smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Instructions
  1. Add water to a large stock pot over high heat.
  2. Add all ingredients except for the salt (salt changes how lentils cook).
  3. Bring to a boil then simmer medium-low until everything is softened. I did about 30 minutes.
  4. Add tomato paste and salt to taste, stir to combine
  5. Blend the mixture (you may need to do this in batches) and return to stock pot.
  6. It will thicken when stored in the refrigerator, you can add a little water when reheating to thin it out if desired.
