METHOD

1
MISE EN PLACE • Thinly slice celery. Peel, halve and thinly slice shallots. Peel and mince garlic. Finely chop celery, shallot and garlic together. • Quarter apple. Cut away core and seeds. Thinly slice each quarter lengthwise. Stack slices, and cut crosswise into fat matchsticks. • Halve and thinly slice dates. • Pick and roughly chop parsley leaves. • Cut or tear arugula into bite-size pieces.
2
• Place a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add 2 teaspoons cooking oil and celery mixture. Cook, stirring,  until vegetables are translucent, 3-4 minutes. • Add lentils, bouillon cube, 4 cups water, Bragg Liquid Aminos, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and celery seed. Increase heat to medium-high. • When mixture simmers, reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lentils are very soft, 10-12 minutes.  
3
While soup cooks, in a bowl, combine apple, dates, parsley, 1 tablespoon olive oil, vinegar and kosher salt to taste.
4
• Taste soup, and adjust seasoning as desired with kosher salt. • If you have a blender, you can purée soup to your desired consistency. • If soup seems too thick, add a little water; if it seems too thin, simmer a few minutes more. Tip: If you have a stand blender, avoid splattering hot soup by opening the steam vent in the lid and processing in small batches.
5
Add arugula to apple-date mixture, and toss gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
6
• Divide soup between 2 bowls. Serve with salad atop the soup or on the side. • Drizzle soups with a total 1 tablespoon olive oil, and enjoy!
