hello,

I came across SkinnyM’s “Protein Black Bean and Lentil Soup,” a few days ago and figured this would be a great alternative to my regular Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili. And y’all, I was right! This plant-based recipe is deeelicious and so so easy to make (takes less than 20 min). I made some slight variations to SkinnyM’s recipe, which I included below, but if you’re looking for something super nutritious, quick, and healthy look no further.

What you’ll need + how to make this amazing plant-based recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup French Lentils, dried
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can tomatoes
  • 5 – 6 leaves of Swiss chard
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1-2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, extra-virgin
  • 1 tsp cumin

Prep:
Chop the garlic, celery, carrots and the onion. Place aside until needed.

Cooking:

  1. Add olive oil to a large pot over medium heat. Once oil is warm, add the chopped garlic and saute for about a minute (you want them to get tender, not crispy).
  2. Add the chopped onion, carrots, and celery saute until tender (about 5 min). Then add the remaining ingredients and bring to a slow boil. (Note: my husband and I love spicy foods so I doubled the required amount of chili powder and pepper flakes).
  3. Once everything is boiling reduce the heat and let stew simmer for about 25 min.
  4. Finally, add the Swiss chard to the mixture and cook stew for another 5 min, long enough to wilt and leaves and to ensure lentils are tender.

That’s it! Seriously, how easy is that!? I have to thank SkinnyM’s for this recipe, truly one of our favorite winter stews. Bonne appétit! Let me know what you think once you’ve given this recipe a go!
