Cleansing Lentil & Greens Soup

This is a go to soup for me. Quick, warming and cleansing. The spices are complex enough to keep it interesting. V, GF.


- 1 C red lentil

- half a bunch kale (or spinach or any other greens you have around)

- 1/2 white onion (omit for pitta)

- 2 cloves garlic (omit if pitta is flaring, add more if you feel under the weather)

- 1 inch nob fresh ginger minced

- 5 C water or veggie stock

- 1 TB sesame oil

- 1/4 ts mustard seed

- 1/4 ts cumin seed

- 1 ts turmeric

- 1/2 TB garam masala

- salt & pepper to taste


- rinse red lentils thoroughly

- toast mustard & cumin seeds in oil until mustard seeds pop

- add onion, garlic & ginger

- when those soften (about 5-min), add spices (garam masala and turmeric), let cook for a minute

- add red lentils, incorporate (stir) for about a minute

- add water

- bring to boil, then lower to simmer, let it hang for 15-minutes

* optional: use immersion blender to make it a little creamier, but, eh, that's on you

- throw in greens

- salt & pepper to taste, a squirt of lemon or some fresh cilantro can adds brightness
