This is zippy soup is hearty as well as refreshing.  I enjoyed it at Fresh Tracks Café at Whitewater Ski Resort that I bought the recipe book & now make it at home & take skiing with me!

From Whitewater Cooks: Pure, Simple and Real
Makes 8 servings


2 tsp salt
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 large onion, diced
1 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp red chili flakes
1 Tbsp oregano
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
2 bay leaves
2 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped (optional)
2 cups dried red lentils (or you can use green lentils too)
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 carrots, diced
8 cups vegetable or chicken stock
juice of 2 lemons
2 tsp lemon zest
1 cup feta cheese crumbled


Rinse the dried lentils and set aside to drain.

Heat the olive oil in a large pot, add onions and sauté until translucent. Add carrots, garlic, salt, pepper, chili flakes, rosemary, oregano and bay leaves. Stir well and sauté until the carrots are tender. Add the stock and the lentils and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and summer for about 25 minutes or until the lentils are sfot.

Remove the bay leaves. You may puree the soup at this point or just leave it as is.

Add the lemon juice, zest and more salt and pepper to taste.

To serve, ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with feta and dill on top.
