Sopa de lentejas is the Spanish version of lentil soup… and it’s much more than delicious! It features vegan Spanish sausage, vegan bacon strips, sweet paprika, and a mix of onion and spices that will make your French lentils taste like you’ve never tasted before!

Flavourful and thick, it’s the perfect comfort food all protein and with low carbs!

To prepare it, soak the lentils with salt and hot water for 30 minutes. In the meanwhile, prepare the soup base by heating some olive oil in a French oven and cooking the diced carrots, dried onion, vegan bacon, and vegan Spanish sausage. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the sausage is well golden and the carrots are soft. Then, add the lentils, and cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the water, vegetable powder, bay leaves, and seasoning. Cook for another 20 minutes. Finally, in a small pot, cook the oil, garlic, onion, paprika, and flour for a few minutes, then pour into the soup and stir well. Complete the cooking for another couple of minutes, until it thickens, and serve well hot, topped with a handful of fresh parsley leaves.

You can accompany with toasted bread.
