Ingredients

Fire Roasted Tomato and Lentil Soup

  • 3 cups cooked red lentils (I cooked 1 cup dry lentils in 4 cups of water about 25 minutes but your brand may vary)
  • 3 cups fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 3/4 tsp salt (really depends on how much salt is in your tomatoes so this is to taste)
  • 1 dash fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 each lemon
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin

Avocado Yogurt

  • 1 each ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (roughly 1:1:1 avocado:yogurt:milk)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 dash salt

Finish

  • 1 tbsp chipotles in adobo (Optional)

Instructions

Fire Roasted Tomato and Lentil Soup

  • If you haven’t already, cook your lentils according to their instructions.
  • Put your fire roasted tomatoes in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  • Pour the tomatoes and the cooked lentils into a pot. Heat over medium heat.
  • Add the salt, juice of lemon, smoked paprika, cumin, and a bit of fresh ground pepper to the pot and whisk in until well combined.
  • Once the mixture is simmering, reduce heat and let simmer for 10 minutes. Taste again and adjust seasonings. If you want some heat you can add some chipotles in adobo to the soup now or wait until serving it and everyone can adjust their own!

Avocado Yogurt

  • Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. With a spoon scoop into a blender. Add an equal volume of yogurt and milk to the blender and sprinkle a bit of salt. Blend until completely mixed and smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides and/or add a little more milk at a time to get a nice, pourable texture.

Finish

  • Ladle some of the soup into a bowl, drizzle with avocado yogurt, and (Optionally) some chipotles in adobo. Enjoy!
