meals - lentil soup

*all organic 

Fresh pressed garlic - I used about 1 full head
Olive Oil
1 large sweet onion
1 bunch of celery
6 carrots - I used a rainbow carrots
1/4 cup Sherry or dry white wine
3-4 tablespoons or to taste of vegetable stock paste
1-2 teapots full of boiling water - depending on the size pot you use, fill it up
About 2 cups of lentils - I used French lentils this time
1 large can of fire roasted diced tomatoes
2-3 large handfuls of spinach
Salt & Pepper to taste
*you can make pasta or another grain separately to add to your bowl once the soup is complete


Drizzle olive oil into a large pot, add pressed garlic & saute until golden, stirring occasionally.
Add diced onions, & saute until golden, stirring occasionally,
Add in the diced carrots, & celery.
Add in the Sherry & let it completely reduce allowing the flavors to absorb.
Add in the remaining ingredients: boiling water, vegetable stock, lentils, tomatoes, & chopped spinach.
Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer, cover & allow the soup to cook until the lentils are tender. Stir occasionally & add salt & pepper to taste - I also usually add some hot sauce once I pour myself a bowl.

p.s. this recipe is via my mom :)
