Lentils and Ham – the perfect combination for fall hearty soup, especially with two kinds of potatoes, carrots, onions and celery. Recipe adapted from Food.com by Georgia Downard


2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 shallots, minced
1/2 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
1/2 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 medium celery rib, chopped
1 (16 oz.) can lentils, drained

2 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch dice

Parsley and garlic clove for garnish

In a soup pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots, carrot, and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in lentils, potatoes and ham, cover, and simmer until potatoes are softened, 10 minutes longer.
