Ingredients for about 4 servings:

  • 600 g carrots (organic, unpeeled)
  • 135 g of red lentils
  • 1 liter of vegetable soup
  • 125 ml of milk (low-fat)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • A small cup (approx. 150 g) of low-fat natural yogurt
  • Fresh parsley
  • Optional: some bread as desired for dipping

Approximately per serving:

  • 240 calories
  • 7 grams of fat
  • 34 grams of carbohydrates
  • 11 grams of protein

And this is how it is done:

  1. Wash the carrot and cut it into larger pieces. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pot, add carrots and lentils and saute briefly. Add vegetable broth and milk and bring to a boil. Cook on low to medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Purée the soup with a hand mixer until you reach the desired consistency. Here you can decide for yourself whether you want to enjoy the soup fine or with a few pieces. Season to taste with salt, pepper and chili.
  3. Serve the soup in four bowls, place a spoonful of yogurt in the middle and sprinkle with fresh parsley. If you want, you can add a toasted slice of your favorite bread for dipping.

Advice: Of course, you can easily prepare this dish vegan. Simply replace milk and yogurt with a plant-based alternative, such as oat or soy. If you’re making a larger batch, this soup also freezes well and thaws as needed.

For many years, lenses received little attention. They have been enjoying increasing popularity for some time now, and rightly so! Small legumes not only fill you up and are low in calories, they also contain more protein than many animal products. This makes them ideal for diets and vegetarian diets. With this recipe they become one light lentil soup with carrots. Be sure to try it!
