I can’t describe just how delicious this Mediterranean Lentil & Collards Soup is. So much flavour and healthiness packed in just one bowl of soup.

This lentil and collard soup is for one of those times when you are running short on time. Using Instant Pot, you can have a nutritious meal on the table in 30 minutes, including prep time.

Why is this lentil and collard soup so healthy! 

This is another one of those soups that is filled with so many nutrient-packed ingredients. The lentils are an excellent source of B vitamins, iron, dietary fiber and protein.

The collard greens are considered superfoods because they are antioxidant-rich greens containing vitamin C, A and calcium and high levels of vitamin K. This is why this lentil and collard soup is especially good for someone who is following a plant-based diet. 

Collard greens are also easier to digest than cabbage or kale.

So we know the soup is good for us. But what I love about this wholesome soup even more, is the flavour, the chunky textures and the Indian spices.

Cumin, turmeric and bay leaf are the spices that gave this Mediterranean soup such a good flavour.

I will admit this is not your typical soup recipe. However, I believe we can always add a healthy and delicious soup to our repertoire.

A soup made in 30 minutes that tastes this good is a win-win! Enjoy 🙂
