I joined because beginning pointed me here. :o) And I have this WONDERFUL soup recipe from an olllld vegetarian book I thought I'd share. I made it last night and it smells and tastes FABULOUS!

  • 2 cups dried lentils
  • 8 cups of vegetable broth (what I used) -or- 8 cups water
  • 1 medium potato, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1/2 medium sized red onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 1/2-2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. vinegar

  • Soup Pot: mix all ingredients except for the vinegar in a soup pot and cook until lentils are done; approx. 1 hour. Add the vinegar at the end.

    Crockpot: same thing but cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or on HIGH for 8-10 hours.

    Yield: 8 servings

    Note: I also added a good bit of black pepper, garlic powder, parsley flakes, a bit of cumin powder and a touch of dill seeds to kick it up a notch.
