Since January is National Soup Month and winter is still here, we thought we’d share one of our soup recipes with you. Loaded with seasonal root vegetables, warming herbs, and nutrition, try out this delicious lentil soup recipe!


  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 4 large carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 3 cups yellow or red baby potatoes
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary or thyme

  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add water, onion, carrots, and celery. Season with a bit of salt and pepper and stir.
  2. Sauté for 4-5 minutes or until slightly tender and golden brown.
  3. Add potatoes and season with a bit more salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 2 minutes more.
