Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup

Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup

I always imagine soup as being one of those long, time-consuming foods to make. It definitely can be, but now I know it doesn’t have to be. I found this recipe on the blog, hipsterfood, and thought it looked too easy not to try. I’m also a sucker for anything with lentils in it.

Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup Yield

One thing that they don’t mention in the actual recipe is that you need a lot of water. I’d estimate that I added about 4 cups of water through the whole process and mine still came out thicker than the batch on their blog. I also left out the celery and added whatever herbs/spices I had on hand. A little paprika gave a nice smoky flavor to it all.

Hipsterfood’s Easy Lentil Soup Croutons

At the end I made “croutons” by chopping up some gluten-free bread, frying it in a little olive oil and seasoning them. Now I know I’ll never have to buy croutons again. It’s also terrific with melted cheese or sour cream on top.

What’s your favorite soup recipes? I’d love ideas for more to make.

    I love soup and this looks amazing! I’ve only worked with lentils a few times and looking for more ways to cook them.

    This looks great!
    I have tons of soup and stew recipes on my blog. The mushroom barley and taco soup are really easy and flavorful!

    You are probably too young to own a crockpot, but just in case you have one here’s my favorite lentil soup because it’s easy to put on early in the day and have dinner any time later.


    p.s. I also like split pea in the crockpot. Just use your immersion blender to whirl it all together in the end.
