GAPS Lentil Soup

I made this for tonight’s dinner, and it tasted really good!

Here’s the recipe!


4 organic carrots (roughly chopped)

3 stalks of organic celery (roughly chopped)

 2 onions (roughly chopped)

16 ounces of dried lentils (washed)

28 ounce can of plum tomatoes

4 cups of water

5 cups of homemade chicken broth

1 teaspoon of dried oregano

olive oil

sea salt, pepper

grated pecorino romano (optional)


Place the vegetables in a large pot with some olive oil, and cook until onions are translucent. Add in lentils, water, and broth. Bring to a steady boil for 15-30 minutes. Next, add the plum tomatoes and try to break them up in the pot with a spoon. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add in the oregano, sea salt, and pepper. Let finish cooking for 5-10 minutes. Top with grated pecorino romano if desired.
