Essential Sports Nutrition What You Need to Do:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the tomatoes, red bell peppers, and onion into similar-sized pieces and place them on two lined baking sheets along with the peeled garlic cloves. Toss with avocado oil, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Roast in the oven for 18 minutes.
2. While the vegetables are roasting, rinse the lentils and place them in a medium saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes.
3. Once the vegetables are roasted, reserve a few pieces for garnishing the soup later. Transfer the remaining roasted vegetables to a blender, along with the vegetable broth and cooked lentils. Blend until smooth.
4. Pour the blended soup into a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Add Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and dried basil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
5. Serve the soup in bowls, topped with optional garnishes such as croutons, a drizzle of olive oil, and reserved roasted peppers and onions. Enjoy alongside a side salad of arugula and sliced radishes tossed in your favorite dressing.
