Lentil Soup

Solar oven lentil soup recipe from the Solavore blog

Made with the recipe on the Bob's Red Mill lentil package, we simply reduced the liquid by 25 percent. Set it out in the Solavore Sport for a couple hours and voila!


2T olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/2 cup diced celery
1 t salt
2 1/2 cup lentils
15 oz canned diced tomatoes
6 cups vegetable broth
1/2 t ground cumin
1/2 t ground coriander
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t ground cardamom


Heat oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and salt. Let cook until soft, about 5 minutes. As always, if you wish to do this step in the solar oven, just add the first five ingredients in your graniteware pot and let cook in the preheated Solavore Sport for approximately 30 minutes.

Sort and rinse lentils, then add the onion mixture, lentils, tomatoes, broth and spices to the graniteware pot. Cover and place in the Sport to cook. The soup will be done in approximately 2-3 hours depending on conditions. To test for doneness, make sure your lentils are tender.
