For our veggie soup for Sunday night (it’s good to eat extra healthy when you are baking cookies!) I made up my recipe as I went.
I started with chopping tons of veggies with my food chopper. Thanks to Red Gold for sending me some tomatoes to try – I didn’t have to chop those!
Lots of onions…
Lots of carrots, celery and mushrooms.
Plus some lentils and veggie broth.
Lentil Veggie Soup
these are approximations, modify it to your liking!
1 lg. onion, diced
1 c. carrots, diced
4 pieces of celery, diced
1 package of mushrooms, diced
1 T. EVOO
1-1.5 c. lentils
1 can of tomatoes, diced and with juice
5-6 cups of veggie broth (or chicken broth)
Chop all veggies.
Simmer chopped onions, carrots, celery, and mushrooms with EVOO until softened.
Add lentils, broth and tomatoes.
Boil for 5-10 minutes then simmer until lentils are soft.
Serve with warm, multigrain bread and great friends!
