2 h 5 m | 10 servings | 268 cals

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
2 stalks celery with leaves, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
6 cups water
2 cups French green lentils
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon salt, or more to taste
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup butter (optional)
1 cup all-purpose flour (optional)
1 lemon, cut into wedges
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Prep 30 m | Cook 1 h 35 m | Ready In 2 h 5 m

Heat olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, celery, and carrots until slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add water, lentils, 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, salt, coriander, cumin, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; stir to incorporate. Cover and simmer until lentils are tender, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 hours.

Whisk butter and flour together in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; stir constantly until thickened and paste-like, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low, stirring every 2 to 3 minutes, until light brown, about 20 more minutes. Whisk flour paste into finished soup, a spoonful at a time, until smooth and creamy. Serve with lemon wedges, 2 tablespoons parsley, and a sprinkle of freshly ground pepper.
