Lentil soup is such an easy plant-based meal to put together. Lentils cook easily without needing to be soaked first, are high in plant-based protein, high in antioxidants, and high in fiber! My children love lentil soup and are happy to have it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Serve soup with shaved parmesan cheese and a crusty whole grain bread for a balanced meal.

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large onions chopped
2 teaspoons sea salt
½ teaspoons black pepper
6 cloves garlic crushed
3 large carrots sliced
1 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1½ cups green lentils
8 cups water
2 cups diced tomatoes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 bunches lacinato kale chopped
1 large handfuls parsley chopped
