Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large skillet or Dutch oven and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Stir in carrot, onion, and olive oil cooking until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Cover bacon mixture with chicken broth, water, and salsa; mix in lentils, bay leaf, cumin, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, 40 to 50 minutes. Stir in spinach and potatoes; simmer until spinach is wilted and potatoes are cooked, 10 to 15 minutes longer.

Turned out GREAT! Such a nice change from the standard chili, broccoli cheddar, or baked potato soups. Light and relatively low cal. Will definitely do this again. I did add 2 tbsp. lemon juice as well as 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar to give it a bit of "tang". Thanks for the terrific recipe!

I used lentils for the first time in this recipe. A word of caution...if you use red lentils, reduce the cooking time. Red lentils take the shortest amount of time to cook. My soup came out mushy. Next time maybe 25 minutes with red lentils in it.
