Brown Lentil Soup

Recipe by Isra Al-Salem






This soup is rich in nutrients and minerals from the vegetables and bone broth used to make it. The high level of minerals is promoting alkalinity in the body, while the fresh turmeric root adds additional anti-inflammatory properties to it. It’s great for digestive health and promoting healing to the intestinal lining. Meat broth can be omitted, making this recipe plant based and suitable for all.

    Note: green, brown and/or red lentils may be used in this soup. Green lentils cook slower and should be soaked for a few hours prior or overnight as they are tougher (and take longer) to cook. Brown and red lentils are softer and don’t need to be soaked for this recipe.
