Vegan Lentil Soup

F for France. France is a dream destination vacation for many. About 83 million tourists visit France every year. So it doesn't come as a surprise when I read that France is the most popular tourist destination. 

And it goes without saying that French cuisine is renowned for being one of the finest in the world. So I chose this humble lentil soup to showcase the versatility of French cuisine.

Ingredients - 

Olive Oil 1 Tbsp
Garlic, grated 1 tsp
Onions, chopped 1/2 cup
Celery, chopped 1/2 cup
Carrots 1 1/2 cups
Tomatoes, chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato Paste 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Thyme, dried 1/4 tsp
Vegetable Stock 4 cups
Red Lentils/Whole Masoor Dal 3/4 cup
Crushed Pepper as needed
Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tsp

Vegan Lentil Soup

Method Of Preparation -

Heat a stockpot/pressure cooker, add oil and sauté the garlic and onions until the onions turn light brown.

Add in the celery, carrots, and tomatoes along with the tomato paste. Sprinkle in the flavors of salt, dried thyme, and black pepper to the mixture. 

Add the vegetable stock, and lentils too. 

Bring the soup to a boil, and then reduce the temperature slightly so that it is simmering. At this stage I covered the pressure cooker and cooked for about 17 min or typically 2 hisses.

When the pressure is released from the cooker, use an immersion blender to coarsely blend the hot contents. Add about a teaspoon of vinegar and let it simmer for a couple minutes. 

Serve the soup hot or store it for up to three days in the refrigerator.
