Butternut Squash & Lentil Soup

Soup is one of my all time favorite things to make. I love curling up on my couch at night with a big blanket wrapped around me and a huge bowl of soup on my lap while watching a movie. My favorite thing about soup is that if you keep a few staple items in your pantry you can always throw one together. I always have red lentils, red pepper, onion, thyme, veggie broth and garlic in my fridge. All I needed was a few other ingredients to pull off this soup. Butternut squash, kale and a little curry powder set it off.



  • 1 red bell pepper

  • 1 leek chopped

  • 1/2 butternut squash diced

  • 1/2 red onion diced

  • 1 cup of red lentils

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 2 thyme leave sprigs

  • 1 small rosemary sprig

  • 2 tsp of curry powder

  • 8 cups of veggie stock

  • 4 tbs of extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 cups of arugula or kale

  • 1/2 tsp of sea salt

  • salt to taste


  1. Add 3 tbs of extra virgin to a large pot with a lid (I use a dutch oven) and place over medium heat.

  2. Add in the red pepper, leeks, squash, onion and garlic and cook while stirring occasionally.

  3. Next add n the curry powder, salt, rosemary and thyme leaves.

  4. Carefully pour in the veggie stock and cover with a lid.

  5. Reduce to medium low heat and cover with a lid.

  6. Cook for about 20 minutes while stirring occasionally.

  7. Remove and discard the herb sprigs and stir in the arugula or kale.

  8. Add additional salt to taste before serving.
