Why you’ll love it

This red lentil soup recipe is comforting, healthy and subtly sweet, thanks to an unexpected ingredient: dried apricots!

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, heat oil and add onion, bell pepper, apricots, salt, and pepper. Sauté, stirring frequently.


Add broth, lentils, tomatoes, dried parsley, cumin, garlic powder, thyme, and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.


Cover partially and simmer 20-30 minutes or until lentils are softened. Stir occasionally and add more water if it becomes too thick.


Remove about 4 cups of soup and purée the remaining soup using an immersion blender or carefully using a traditional blender in batches.
