Instructions

  • In a large pot, add onion and garlic with a splash of vegetable broth. Cook the onions until translucent and then add the red bell pepper and jalapeño and an additional splash of vegetable broth.
  • While the peppers cook, rinse the red lentils a few times until the water becomes clear. Once peppers are soft, add the remaining vegetable broth, along with the beans, lentils, salt, cumin, chili powder and oregano. Bring to a simmer and cover.
  • Stir the soup every 7-10 minutes ensuring it doesn't stick to the bottom and burn. After the lentils are cooked thouroughly, serve with additional oregano and red pepper flakes.
