easy flavory lemon mint lentil soup recipe

Jump to Recipe

This easy flavory lemon mint lentil soup is the perfect healthy, vegan, warm, and cozy meal on cold days.

I thank the universe for Turkish cuisine. I love Middle eastern cuisine. It reminds me so much of Dominican cuisine, full of fresh ingredients which give so much flavor.
The amazing Turkish lentil soup inspires this soup. It is not an authentic traditional recipe. It's just inspired by it.

ingredients for the easy flavory lemon mint lentil soup recipe

  • Lentil.

    Red and yellow lentils are both perfect for this recipe. Lentils are a fantastic source of Vitamin B6, Fiber, Folate, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Copper, and Manganese. Lentils have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and neuroprotective effects.
  • Onion.

    The onion will add so much flavor to the lentil soup. You can use a yellow or red onion. If you love onions, you can add more as the instruction says.
  • Garlic.

    Together with the onion, the garlic forms the basis of the season. Make sure that Garlic cloves are fresh.
  • Potatoes.

    You don't need many potatoes; it will thicken the soup and add some healthy carbohydrates.
  • Carrots.

    The carrot will give the soup a sweet taste, perfect for balancing all the different ingredients.
  • Celery.

    One celery stick.
  • Lemon.

    Lemon zest gives the soup a fresh note. In the end, you will drizzle some lemon juice in the soup, which is perfectly sour.
  • Mint.

    This is the cherry on top of this dish. The mint, combined with the other ingredients, is just out of this world.
  • Tomato paste.

    Not only will the soup have an excellent color it will also have a slight tomato taste.

how to serve the lemon mint lentil soup

The soup is so delicious you can serve it all by itself. However, if you want some extra carbohydrates, eat bread with it. It fits perfectly.

how to store the lentil soup

You can store the soup in a container in the fridge for about three days. Before putting the lid on the container, please wait until it cools off completely. If you want to eat the soup after a few days, I recommend placing some caraway seeds on top to avoid bloating.
