My new favorite. Amazing flavors reminiscent of Lebanese soups. Powerfully delicious.
In a large soup pot, saute the onions, garlic and salt in 1 Tbs olive oil until onions turn soft, about 4 minutes
Add the lentils and carrots and cook for 1 minute
Pour in water, then bring to a boil over high heat, then turn heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 15 minutes
Meanwhile, heat 1 Tbs olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add collard greens, and cook until wilted, about 5-7 minutes.
When the lentils are tender, stir in the collard greens and season with cumin and cinnamon. Allow to simmer 10 more minutes.
Stir in lemon juice before serving
2 cups dried split peas
4 large carrots, chopped
2 apples, peeled & chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
6 cups filtered water
2 cubes vegan (or chicken) bouillon
1 bay leaf
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
Rinse split peas; chop carrots; peel, seed & chop apple; mince garlic (or use 2 cubes Dorot’s crushed garlic–in frozen aisle at TJ’s and Whole Foods).
but the balsamic vinegar into your slow cooker and cook for 6 – 8 hours on low. Remove bay leaf, add balsamic. Serve “rustic” or puree with an immersion blender.

2 cups rough chopped cucumber
2 cups rough chopped red bell pepper
2 cups rough chopped ripe tomato
2 cups rough chopped carrot
2 cups tomato juice
1 handful fresh cilantro
1 handful fresh basil
1 avocado (mix with soup or slice on top)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup red-wine vinegar
splash of olive oil
2 dashes tabasco sauce
2 dashes worcestershire
Process batches in a food processor or Vitamix. I like to separate the carrots, cucumbers and peppers + tomato juice and blend/pulse low–it gives the soup a great chunky texture. Throw it all in a big bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill before serving. Delicious alone, with sourdough croutons, or diced avocado on top.
