Recipe: Jane Brody’s Favorite Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup, from Jane Brody’s Good Food Book

  • It’s really good!
    • 2 T olive or vegetable oil
    • 2 c chopped onions
    • 3 carrots, coarsely grated
    • 3/4 t marjoram, crumbled
    • 3/4 t thyme leaves, crumbled
    • 1 28-oz can tomatoes with their juice, coarsely chopped
    • 7 c broth (beef, chicken, or vegetable)*
    • 1 1/2 c dried lentils, rinsed and picked over
    • 1/2 t salt
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 6 oz dry white wine
    • 1/3 c chopped fresh parsley or 2 T dried parsley flakes
    • 4 oz Cheddar, grated
    • 1-2 T Worcestershire Sauce (optional, this is my modification)
    • 1/2-1 t smoke flavoring (optional, this is my modification)
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and saute the onions, carrots, marjoram, and thyme, stirring the vegetables for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the tomatoes, broth, and lentils.  Bring the soup to a boil, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer the soup for about 1 hour or until the lentils are tender.
  3. Add the salt, pepper, wine, parsley, Worcestershire Sauce and smoke flavoring and simmer the soup for a few minutes.  Serve with cheese sprinkled on each portion.

* In place of homemade broth, you can use 3 bouillon cubes with 7 cups of water or 3 1/2 cups of canned broth and 3 1/2 cups of water.

Make it with a Chef’n!
