Easy Lentil Soup with lemon and greens is a hearty winter dish that will warm you through on the coldest days.
In a medium sized pot, saute the carrot, celery, and onion in the olive oil over medium heat until starting to soften (about 7-8 minutes).
Add the garlic, ginger, lentils, broth/water, and bay leaf, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer.
Cook, uncovered, until the lentils have softened. This takes about 20-30 minutes.
Add the greens, and stir well to combine, simmering until they have wilted down.
Stir in the dill and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Serve warm.
