Lentil Soup

Recipe by Dr. Linda Khoshaba


2 cups Orange Lentils-
1 large Yellow Onion
2 tsp Turmeric
2 tsp Curry Powder
1⁄2 tsp Black Pepper
1⁄2 tsp Better than Bouillon
3 cups of Water
1⁄8 of cup Olive Oil


1⁄2 cup White Rice
lentil soup


  • In a large pot, add olive oil and heat on medium low temperature. 
  • Next, chop up the yellow onion into small pieces and add to the pot, frying the onion until almost caramelized. 
  • Then, add the better than bouillon to melt on top of the onions. 
  • Now add in the lentils and stir with onions. 
  • Time to add in the spices! 
  • Add in the turmeric, curry powder, black better and optional rice to make the soup a bit on a thicker side. 
  • Top of the pot with the 3 cups of water. 
  • Now, let it bring to a boil and then turn down heat to medium low. 
  • Average cooking time is about 20-25 mins.
Volia! All done and ready to serve, my favorite way to eat this is to add chopped red onions and a bit of sriracha sauce on top!

Health Benefits

The recipe is excellent for hormone health, thanks to key ingredients like lentils, turmeric, and olive oil. Lentils support stable blood sugar, essential for hormonal balance, while turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties may positively influence hormone regulation. Olive oil's healthy fats are crucial for hormone production. This nutritious combination makes the soup a beneficial choice for those focusing on endocrine health in a concise, balanced diet.
