How To Make Smoky Vegan Lentil Stew
For this inexpensive, smoky vegan lentil soup recipe, the secret ingredients are smoked salt and smoked paprika. Don’t forget that crusty bread.
Place a stockpot over medium-low heat. Add the olive oil followed by the onion, carrots, celery, and a pinch of salt.
Cook until the vegetables are tender and fragrant for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the garlic and potatoes, cooking for another 2 minutes.
Add the lentils, smoked paprika, smoked salt, thyme, bay leaf, and vegetable broth or water. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook uncovered until the lentils are just about tender for 22 to 24 minutes.
Stir in the tomato paste and lemon juice, and cook for another 5 minutes until the lentils are completely tender. Taste and add more smoked salt if desired.
Divide the soup into 4 bowls and top with fresh parsley before serving. Leftovers will keep for up to 5 days refrigerated.
