Ingredients

    2 Tbsp (30 mL) olive oil

    1 cup (250 mL) chopped onion

    2 garlic cloves, minced

    5 cups (1.25 L) chicken or vegetable stock

    ½ cup (125 mL) split red lentils

    ½ cup (125 mL) green lentils

    1 can (28 oz/796 mL) whole tomatoes

    1 can (5.5 oz/156 mL) tomato paste

    2 Tbsp (30 mL) liquid honey

    6 Tbsp (90 mL) fresh basil pesto

    ½ cup (125 mL) whipping cream

    ½ tsp (2 mL) salt

    ½ tsp (2 mL) ground black pepper


Directions

  1. HEAT a large skillet over medium high heat, add oil. Let it warm for 30 seconds before adding onion. Sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until golden and fragrant, another 3 minutes. Pour in 1 cup (250 mL) of chicken stock and scrape all of the brown bits off the bottom of pan.
  2. POUR this into a slow cooker along with red and green lentils, whole tomatoes, remaining stock, tomato paste, and honey. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
  3. PUREE soup with an immersion blender until smooth, being careful of hot splatters. Stir in pesto and whipping cream. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
