Homemade soups, like this one, are a great opportunity to fill up on a nutritious blend of vegetables, beans and lean protein.  This soup actually tastes better the second day, when the flavors have had a chance to develop.

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup celery chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 oz. chicken tenders, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper



  1. Coat a large pot with cooking spray and heat on high heat.  Sautee the onion until soft.  Add the carrots, celery, mushroom and chicken.  Sautee for a few minutes, until chicken is lightly browned.
  2. Add lentils, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, chicken broth, spices, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.
