Hello dear readers. I bet many of you are thinking about what to prepare for lunch or dinner for your kids and family. I don't think it has to be meat, steak, or some fired stuff all the time. I healthy soup can be just as enjoyable. This time I will present you the recipe for a great soup which I really like to cook and eat. It contains a lot of vegetables. The other benefits of making it is that the ingredients are cheap, easy to find, healthy and the whole dish can be prepared relatively fast, as after you have put it onto the stove it cooks for a while but no interaction from your side is necessary anymore. As lentil is very important for a health digestion and for children also for the bones and muscles this is good way how to make it popular for your family.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: Serves 4 - 6 people


  • 500g lentil
  • 4 carrot
  • 1 kohlrabi
  • 1 onion
  • 5 gloves garlic
  • 1 parsley
  • 1 celery
  • salt
  • 10 balls allspice
  • 7 pcs. bay leaf
  • 5-6 low fat hod dog wiener, if possible with poultry meat only


  1. Vegetables. To start of you need to wash and cut all the vegetable into small pieces. The most important is to pay attention to the onion and garlic as these need to be chopped very gently into very very small chops.
  2. Wieners. Cut the low fat poultry wieners into approximately 0,5 centimeter wide circles. This way they cook well and are nice to look at later on. Please keep in mind that only the poultry wieners will keep your soup healthy as pork and other kinds of meat contain too much fat.
  3. Lentil. The simplest part is to prepare the lentil. Juts wash it under cold water and let it rest and dry. You don't have to keep it in water for a whole night as most lentil recipe demand.
  4. Cooking the soup. Take a big pot. Put a little vegetable oil in it. When the oil is hot insert the chopped onion and let it catch some color. When it is gold, add the garlic. Now add the carrot, celery, kohlrabi pieces. Stir slowly and don't let it burn. When the vegetable is hot and starting to smell well add the dry lentil. Stir for a short while. Add three liter of hot water. Insert the bay leaf and allspice. Add a lot of salt but don't overdo it. When the lentil is softer add the cut wiener and cook it well. The finishing touch would be to add some salt if necessary and let the soup rest as the flavors need to mix during a night.
Cast your vote for Healthy lentil soup

The soup tastes the best when you let it rest for a night. Then re-heat it and serve. If you would like a bit less healthy alternative many people serve it with saur cream in the middle of the serving bowl, of course this is not a must but just an other version.
