1/2 cup celery, chopped
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 pound lentils
12 oz tomatoes, peeled and chopped
8 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Recipe Directions for Lentil Soup

  1. Place the olive oil into a large 6-quart Dutch oven and set over medium heat.
