This past weekend I picked up some Ancho Chili spice from Native Seed Search in Tucson AZ. I wanted to make something delicious with this new spice & found a good recipe for lentil taco soup on Pinterest. However I did not have all the ingredients so I bought a few fresh veggies form the store & threw together what I had in the pantry. My version of Vegan Lentil Taco Soup came out so delicious, my taste buds were salivating the entire time eating it that I felt the need to share it on my blog so you all can try the recipe out yourself! If you end up making it please post a comment below to give me your feedback!
Vegan Lentil Taco Soup
For the Taco Soup:
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
4 c. Organic Vegetable broth
2 c. water
1-16 oz. can diced tomatoes, from my garden
1 c. Green Lentils
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ancho chili powder
Place 3/4 of the jalapeno & onion into a heated pan with coconut oil, sprinkle with Himalayan Salt & Pepper, sauté for 3-5 minutes. Toss in all the garlic, stir for 30 seconds.
Then add in the tomatoes (with juice), lentils, veggie stock & water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Don’t forget the toppings!
Absolutely mouth watering!
Fill up bowls, be generous with the toppings, serve & enjoy!
