Green Lentil French Onion Soup

Green Lentil French Onion Soup

This Green Lentil French Onion Soup is sure to be a must-have this holiday season. Not only is it flavorful and comforting, but it's also a great way to bring some nutrition to the table.  Plus, it's filling and hearty enough to be served as a main course, yet light enough to have as an appetizer. 

We think this recipe is everything a french onion soup should be and more. We love the addition of green lentils to the recipe.

While this isn't the quickest recipe to make its flavor is worth the effort. The caramelized onions, vinegar, and broth combine to give you a soup steeped in flavor. The lentils also add protein and fiber to this recipe helping to make it a substantial meal and not just a soup on the side.

Green lentils are a quick cooking lentil, that hold their shape when cooked. They also have a peppery flavor, making them a perfect paring for this recipe. We do prefer our lentils to have a bit of bite, so we cook them to al dente.

You could make the butter and olive oil optional. My wife and I are vegan and prefer to get all our oils from whole fresh plant foods. I slowly caramelize minced onion for every dish that says “add oil to a pan” to start a dish. The type of onion should be considered for the final dish if the dish uses less spice. For this dish stronger yellow onion is preferred. For some dishes milder sweet white onions provide the lubrication of oil without the stronger onion taste. Thank you for this and all the recipes.
