I always like lentil soups, and this one is no different. The pumpkin spice bread was a nice addition to the soup (and very tasty for breakfast the next day!).  Both recipes adapted from The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

3 large carrots, diced

1 Tbsp dried thyme

1 tsp garam masala

2 cups green lentils

8 cups water

1 can diced tomatoes

4 cups baby spinach

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute onion for about 5 minutes, add the garlic, carrots, thyme, and garam masala and saute for another 5 minutes.

Add the lentils and water, cover and simmer about 35 to 40 minutes. Then add the tomatoes, spinach, salt and vinegar. Simmer 10 minutes more.
