Instructions:

  • In a large saucepan, bring the olive oil to a temperature of medium. The onion, carrots, celery, and garlic should be added in diced form. It should take about five to seven minutes for the vegetables to become tender.
  • Put the lentils, diced tomatoes (with their juices), vegetable broth, water, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and pepper into the pot. Also add the diced tomatoes. In order to combine, stir.
  • When the soup reaches a boil, immediately reduce the heat to a low setting and allow it to simmer, covered, for approximately twenty-five to thirty minutes, or until the lentils are tender.
  • If necessary, taste the dish and make any necessary adjustments to the seasoning. If the soup is too thick, you can adjust the consistency by adding more water until it reaches the desired level.
  • With a garnish of fresh parsley, serve the soup while it is still hot.
