(serves 4 mildly hungry people, so definitely at least double this!)
2 Cups White Onions, chopped
2 Carrots, sliced/chopped
4 Celery Stalks, sliced/chopped
2 Large Cloves Garlic (or more if you want), chopped
10 Cups Vegetable Broth
1-2 Cube or 1-2 tsp. Vegetable Bouillon depending on your taste
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
A little more than 1 Cup Green Lentils
Vegan Baco Bits
2. Add in the lentils, about 8 cups of vegetable broth, and bouillon and let simmer on medium heat, covered, for about 20 minutes. Keep an eye to make sure it doesn't burn.
3. Once it's not so soupy anymore (should be about 20 min but could be closer to 30), take off the heat and start transferring one cup at a time into a blender. With each cup, add in about 1/2 cup of remaining vegetable broth to thin a bit. I like to blend on pulse so it stays a little chunky, but you can blend fully for more of a puree!
4. Put in a bowl and add Baco Bits. I usually add wayyyyyy more than I took a picture of!
