Yellow Lentil Soup Free PD Recipe

Yellow Lentil Soup

This soup is a remake of my favorite Middle Eastern restaurant’s house soup. It is bright in color and thick and rich, with warm flavors of smoked paprika and cumin. Although it is traditionally called lentil soup, it is made with yellow split peas. I always stock all the simple ingredients for this house favorite in my Protective Diet Pantry. Enjoy this soup in under an hour with the use of an electric pressure cooker or prepare it in a slow cooker and arrive home to an unforgettable dinner.

    I made this yesterday for the first time and served it over brown rice. It’s wonderful and will be added to the rotation. I was so good!

    Confused why called “Yellow” lentil Soup if yellow lentils are not used in it?

      This is a remake of a traditional Middle Eastern soup that is called lentil soup. I too was puzzled by this. It can be made with either red lentils or yellow split peas.

    I always double this recipe so I have a few portions to freeze. Love to have this available for a quick dinner or lunch. I have made the lentil with the orange lentils many times and the last batch was made with a tri-colored organic lentil mix from Costco. It was amazing, dark and hearty. I also used my own veggie broth and its just better than any can or restaurant. Low sodium too. I used my immersion blender and leave about half in veggie chunks.

    Oh man the soup is so good. The flavor and texture are outstAnding! I added a dollop of yogurt on top. Going in our regular rotation for sure!

    Making my first PD meal tonight! This soup smells wonderful 🙂 Can’t wait to try it. I was a little timid browning the onions and garlic. Hopefully, I got them brown enough to add the desired flavor. However, I think my pan browed nicely. HA!

      My friend said that one needs to soak and rinse lentils before cooking. Without doing so, they can be hard to digest.

        Lentils are typically babies first food in India and very digestable. Yo can soak them but these will cook completely in this recipe making the soaking process a waste of time.

    This soup has the best flavor! I absolutely love the cumin and smoked paprika. I will definitely be making this again!
