  • If using a can of whole San Marzano tomatoes, drain the liquid into a bowl and reserve. Dice the tomatoes on a cutting board and add them to the reserved liquid.
  • Chop onion, carrots and celery.
  • In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, heat the olive oil until shimmering.
  • Add the onion, carrots, and celery, and cook, stirring often until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Mince the garlic and add. Continue to cook a minute or two.
  • Add the remaining ingredients except the last 3 (spinach, lemon juice and parsley) and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer, and continue to cook for about 25 minutes until the lentils are tender but still hold their shape.
  • Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Stir in the lemon juice. Save a tablespoon of parsley for garnish, stir the rest into the soup.
