Roman Lentil Soup…

Here’s the Roman Lentil Soup I made for the Cook Along on Katie’s blog.


3 Medium Onions (or 3 Leeks)

3 Carrots

2 T Butter

2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 qt. Beef or Chicken Stock

2 c. Red or Brown lentils

Several sprigs of Thyme

1/2 t. Dried Peppercorns

1/4 Lemon Juice or Whey

Sea Salt (or Fish Sauce) and pepper

Piima Cream (or sour cream)

First, measure out the lentils and place in a bowl.  One bag is almost 2 cups so you can finish off the bag or save it for your next lentil recipe.


Cover with water and let them soak for 7 hours.

In a stainless steel pan combine the butter, olive oil, onions, and carrots and cook for 30 minutes or until the veggies are tender.   

Add the chicken stock and lentils to the pan and simmer for another 30 minutes.  I passed on the sprigs of thyme and opted to use a little dried thyme.   

Next comes the stick blender, reheating it a bit, then serving it with a dollop of sour cream on top.


Not the prettiest soup you will ever see, but that was dinner for us :  )

We had our soup with a salad fresh from our garden and homemade bread. 

I confessed earlier I wasn’t a huge fan of the soup, however, I took some in my lunch today and it was a lot better the second time around.  I think the flavors blended better as it sat in the fridge.

Not sure what is up next on the list, but I am going to try to devote my Fridays to the Cook Along.  It’s fun and a great way to try some of the Nourishing Traditions recipes.

Have a great week!

We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
