How To Make Lentil Potato Soup (Vegan)

Start making your lentil potato soup by peeling and chopping potatoes into small, bite-sized chunks.

Next, prepare the vegetables by dicing them in a food processor (to save time) or by hand: minced garlic and onion, as well as carrots and celery. You’ll be sauteing the onion and garlic first, so I recommend dicing them together. Then dice the carrots and celery together as you will add them in shortly after sauteing is done.

Heat oil in a large pot and add diced onions and minced garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes. Then mix in Italian seasoning (or dry basil, dry parsley, dry oregano, or a mixture of them all), paprika (smoked or regular, or you can use chili powder or just skip if you prefer), and tomato paste.

Add a large can of chopped or diced tomatoes, a can of lentils (drained and rinsed), vegetable broth, and now your celery, carrots, and potatoes. Add salt and pepper according to taste. If you use a no-sodium or low-sodium broth, you’ll want to add the measurement of salt I added (in the recipe card below). If you didn’t, you may not need to add salt but just add according to taste.

Bring your soup mixture to a boil, then turn the heat down to a low simmer. Cook for about 20-30 minutes (covered) or until the potatoes are cooked completely. For me, it was completely cooked in 22 mins.

Turn the heat off. Let it sit in the remaining heat for about 10-15 minutes before serving or enjoy it right away! I recommend allowing the soup to cool first. You can also meal prep this lentil potato soup by putting refrigerating it in a tightly sealed container in the fridge (for up to 4-5 days) or freezer (for a month or longer).
