The spinach in this recipe is just one food that contains cancer-combating folate. Eggs, oranges and asparagus are also members of this potent food group.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 large fresh tomatoes
  • 2 cups dry lentils
  • 8 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

Directions

Place large pot with olive oil over medium heat. Chop onions, carrots and celery and add to pot.

Cook and stir until onion is tender. Mince garlic and pour into soup. Add bay leaf, and cook for 2 minutes.

Stir in lentils, water and diced tomatoes, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, and simmer for at least 1 hour. Then, rinse and thinly slice spinach and stir into pot until cooked. Season soup with turmeric and black pepper for flavor, and serve!
