French Green Lentil Soup

A delicious lentil soup that Larry's sisters Laurie and Cyndy discovered. It's particularly good with real French Green Lentils, but green lentils from Trader Joes is also delish.


1 onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 T canola oil
3 carrots, diced
3 stalks celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 oz crushed or diced tomatoes
2 cups dry green lentils
6 cups veggie broth
2 cups greens (kale, spinach, cabbage), chopped
2 T white balsamic vinegar

1 tsp dried oregano
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dried basil
salt to taste


In large soup pot, cook onion, pepper, carrots, and celery in oil until onion is tender. 

Stir in garlic and spices and cook another 3-5 minutes. 

Add tomato, lentils, broth, and greens. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes. 

When ready to serve, stir in vinegar (important, this is delish!)
