Sprouted Lentil Soup Recipe

by Domestic Soul, Jul 30, 2013

In my post on how to sprout lentils, I promised a recipe for a delicious sprouted lentil soup – and here we have it.

This Sprouted Lentil Soup is hearty and filling, but not nearly as heavy as a stick-to-your-ribs stew that you might want, say, mid-winter while you’re snuggled on the couch under that wool afghan your great grandmother made. I think this soup is perfect for those gorgeous fall days where there is just a hint of crisp to the air and you want just a touch of warm and comforting.

So, why am I posting it in July? Because in two days it’s August 1st. Which means fall is right around the corner. (Eek and Yay at the same time!) This gives you plenty of time to plan ahead and get your lentil sprouting technique down to a science. (It’s not that hard. I promise.)

This recipe makes a big batch, so it’s great if you’re looking to have leftovers you can use as lunch the next day. Reheated after a night in the fridge, it still tastes just as good. It’s also gluten free and dairy free, so if you’re looking to feed a large group that includes some folks with food allergies, this might be just the recipe for you.

Now it’s time to dig in and enjoy. On to the recipe:
