Lemon Lentil Soup (with only 4 ingredients!) Recipe

4 Ingredient Lemon Lentil Soup

This recipe is SO good that it's hard to believe there are only four ingredients! It's nearly as easy as opening a can of soup, but so much tastier! And certainly healthier.

Here is a printer friendly version!

Lemon Lentil Soup


1 cup of red lentils, sorted and rinsed (do not use brown lentils here)
1 quart of vegetable broth (I've tried this with chicken broth, and it wasn't very good--it had a metallic taste)
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (this amount gives a small kick--if you like it spicy, use 1/2 tsp.)
Juice of one lemon (plus the zest, if you like!)


Combine the lentils, broth, and pepper flakes in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 30 minutes, until lentils are soft and the soup has thickened. Add the lemon juice (and zest, if you're using it), stir, and heat through.

Makes 4 small servings (about 1 cup) or 2 main-dish servings.

But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
