Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

It seems like second winter has hit in these parts once again, and that means there's still plenty of time left for soup season. There's nothing that I like more than a big bowl of soup, a steaming mug of tea, and a good book to snuggle in with when it's blistery outside. While I do keep a few cans of ready made soup in my pantry, I firmly believe that homemade is where the party is at. Not only does it taste better, but since it's not packed with sodium like canned soups tend to be, it's much healthier for you, too. Earlier this week, I decided to scroll through my list of recipes that I have saved from Golden Blossom Honey and thought that this Lentil Soup looked like it would be perfect to tuck into for a little bone warming comfort. 

This lentil soup is packed full of healthy veggies and filling lentil beans making it the ultimate winter comfort soup. I love that it's made with chicken stock instead of water because the stock always adds that extra kick of flavor that tends to be lacking in water based soups. If you're still getting hit with snow, stay in this weekend and simmer yourself a huge pot of this soup. Pair it with a few slices of crusty rolls or French bread for a complete and hearty lunch or dinner.

*Lentils are one of those foods that can make the tummy a little gassy, so you can add a pinch of baking soda while cooking to help with digestion*

9 cups chicken stock
1 Tablespoon margarine
1/2 cup carrots, peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 leek, white part only, chopped
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 Tablespoon flour
3/4 cup beer
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 bay leaf
3 cups dried lentils
pinch white pepper, to taste

Is it still snowing in your area?


  1. Gorgeous photos, you already know I adore lentils, especially red lentils, I think I have about 4 or 5 kilos of it currently in my pantry, it will be useful when corona virus epidemics hits us. We already have no masks to find in drug-stores so I imagine the food will be scarce too when the worst comes.

  2. That's a good way to use the beer my oldest leaves behind if he comes to stay for the weekend. It does look like some comforting eats, and the temps have dropped significantly here (46-degrees right now!) so soup is perfect!

  3. So yum and healthy! In here there is no snow this Winter, have a lovely weekend ☺

  4. I've never used lentils in my soup but I've thought about it. As for the snow, we don't get snow in Vegas all that often. Once every 8 years or so.

  5. This looks so incredible! I love to have soup when it's chilly outside. I'll be trying this soon!

    I love lentil soup. This recipe is a little different from how I make mine but I am excited to try yours. My family will be pleasantly surprised.

  7. I would never have thought of adding honey to lentil soup! I bet it adds some sweet flavor. I am going to try this recipe this weekend.

  8. I love lentil soup, and do make it often. It's not snowing here. It keeps going from being cold, to warm again. This weekend it might be in the low 60s!

    I haven't been blogging as much. Back to looking at other job opportunities, just to see what's out there. We had conferences for the kids. Then I had to rewrite my exams because the test system we had doesn't work with the students newer systems. Lots of work.

  9. Soup season has come and gone of now...hopefully stays that way. It is snowing everywhere around us, like 30 mins in every direction, but nothing here for weeks. Winning winter so far this past month.

  10. I can't remember the last time I used margarine, but this sure would be the perfect dinner for tonight because it's snowing. Yum! - LYNNDEE

  11. This Lentil Soup looks soooo scrumptious! It was a long time since I tried this soup. I will definitely serve this to my wife soon.

  12. I've never heard the tip about adding a pinch of baking soda to help prevent gas from lentils. I'll try that for sure.

  13. I have never tried honey in my lentil soup! This sounds so good. I will have to try making it soon.

  14. I love lentil soup. It's so filling and great for you! I can't wait to try your recipe. Sounds perfect for the rainy days ahead of us on the forecast.

  15. This really hearty healthy lentil soup, I like that you added honey as sweetener. Love it.

  16. This looks yummy! I've never thought of adding honey to soup - or beer either!

    Hope that you are having a great weekend :) We spent the day with my mum yesterday shopping the sales for the leap day (and getting some great toy bargains we've put away for the kids birthdays!)

  21. This looks delicious!! Growing up, my mother made the best lentil soup. I haven't eaten it since I've lived home. I think you inspired me to try to make it on my own. :)
