    Lentil Soup with Chipotle

    Chef Jamie demonstrates how to make this warm comfort dish. (Published Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018)


    • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1/2 Cup Onions-diced
    • 1/4 Cup Carrots-peeled and diced
    • ¼ Cup Celery-diced
    • 2 tsp. Chipotle Paste
    • 2 tsp. Ground Cumin
    • 1 tsp. Ground Coriander
    • 1 1/2 Cups Dry Lentils-sorted of any stones, etc. rinsed
    • 4 Cups Chicken or Vegetable Broth-or substitute water
    • Salt, Black Pepper, and Red Wine Vinegar To Taste


    • Heat saucepan on medium heat. Add olive oil, onions, carrots and celery. Cook stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes or until onions are very softened and sweet smelling.
    • Add the chipotle paste, cumin, and coriander, cook for another 1 minute. Add the lentils and the broth to cover all the ingredients.
    • Place lid on pot and simmer for about 30 minutes or until everything is very tender. If a thicker soup is desired, puree or mash up some of the lentils and return soup to a boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. Enjoy!
