I made a lentil soup a while back that we LOVED. It was just lentils, carrots, vegetable broth, some spices...and I think that's all. It was really easy and really yummy. Of course, I can't find the recipe. And all the recipes I see online call for something tomato-y. One ds doesn't like tomato sauce or similar things, and I don't want to chance it.

Anyone have a tomato-free lentil soup recipe? I have tomatoes I could dice up myself, and ds might eat it. More likely than the canned diced tomatoes or tomato sauce, at least. But tomato-free would be even better.

Thanks!

I make my lentil soup without any tomato products (my kids don't like it). Just saute onions, garlic, carrots, celery, add lentils, water, chicken soup mix, salt/pepper and cook for 30-45 minutes. Easy and soo good.

I never put tomatoes in lentil soup. I make soup with whatever root vegetables I have, and then add lentils. Sometimes I put barley in it, too. You can add lentils into any soup that has a clear broth.

I don't use tomatoes in mine either. I season it with Hawaij. It adds flavor and also thickens the soup slightly. I also add a cubed potato or two along with onions, garlic and carrots. I use orange lentils.

I never put tomatoes in lentil soup. Mine sounds like yours--lentils, carrot, parsnip, potato, celery, onion, garlic, salt & pepper. and whatever spices grab my fancy at the time. Try cumin and curry powder for an Indian flavor. Cut veggies up into large chunks and cook for a long, long time. If you use vegetable broth, so much the better. I don't use broth granules because of the salt content but they do add flavor. I try to make up for that by supercharging the soup with flavorful veggies.

No tomatoes for me, either!

Different colored lentils each have a very subtle difference in flavor. Experiment around and have fun.

The yellow lentils are the most mild, and can be used instead of split peas. The orange ones are a bit more earthy, and go really well with veggies. The French black lentils are very earthy, and go great with lamb sausage and diced carrots.

Sprouted lentils make a delicious, light soup, especially when paired with fresh spring vegetables. Try it some time!

To me, h'adom adom dish that eisav requested seems more like the green/brown lentils cooked in a tomato soup, than the mini orange ones that turn yellow and dissolve like split peas.
