Tasty Tuesday Lentil Soup

As we push through the last few weeks of cold weather, I thought I’d share one more very low SmartPoint, hearty soup to get us through!! This comes from the kitchen of my dear friend Ursula, who was kind enough to send her recipe to me.

Lentil soup

Total SmartPoints = 7

Yield = Approx 8 servings @1 SmartPoint each


2 tsp olive oil

1/2 cu chopped celery

1 med onion chopped

1 medium yellow potato peeled and cubed

1/2 tsp mild curry

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 -28 oz can diced plum tomatoes with juice

1 cu red lentils

1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained

1 tsp Salt

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

4 cups water

Sauté onion, celery, and potatoes with curry, turmeric, and cinnamon in olive oil 5-8 min.

Add canned tomatoes and cook another 10 min

Add 4 cups of water with lentils, chickpeas, and Salt.  Bring to boil, then simmer 45 min to an hour.  Check liquid level, can add more water if needed.

Just before serving, add lemon juice, balsamic vinegar.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!! Let me know if you like the soup and if you have any awesome recipes you’d like me to share. It’s a group effort😄

All is well❤️

    Yummm….can’t wait to try this. I just put it into my WW recipes online and realized it is only ONE point per serving under the Freestyle plan. One quick question…is the one cup of lentils dry or precooked when it goes into the soup?
