    Default Broccoli/Lentil Soup

    Soup recipe comes from the article linked in this thread:

    Sounds yummy and I can't wait to try this one!

    1 ½ tbsp (22.5 mL) extra virgin olive oil
    2 tsp (10 mL) crushed garlic
    ¾ cup (85 mL) chopped onion
    1 large carrot, chopped
    1 celery stalk, chopped
    1 tbsp (15 mL) dried basil
    3 cups (750 mL) chopped broccoli (1 large head)
    ¾ cup (85 mL) dried green lentils
    4 cups (1 L) low sodium chicken broth
    2 tbsp (30 mL) parmesan cheese, grated
    Optional: 2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)

    1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat.
    2. Add onions and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes.
    3. Add the carrots, celery and basil and cook for a few more minutes until the spices coat them nicely.
    4. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
    5. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour covered, covered.
    6. Using a wand blender, puree till smooth. Garnish with green onions if desired.
    Makes three 2 cup (500 mL) servings. Freeze some portions for workdays on the run.
