Lentil Soup...Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
Lentil Soup

1 bag of lentils....put in a collander and run hot water through for about 1 minute
1 cup of small carrots or cut up carrots
1 cup cut up celery
2 large onions, sliced and sauteed in OLIVE OIL...(olive oil is the secret)
Bacon bits to taste (about 1 small handful)
Salt/Pepper to taste
Couple of chicken boullion cubes.
1 package of frozen or fresh spinach the last 15 minutes cooking soup

Put all this in a pan with the sauteed onions and cook until lentils are soft....Delicious...
Can add rice if you choose...Very healthy....and a cheap meal full of protein and iron...

and the GRAINS of PARADISE are???????


seeds of the perennial aframomum melegueta. they have a peppery flavor, with flowery undertones and a cardamom-like aftertaste. i'd just go ahead and use cardamom.

King ~ Use what you like best, in my opinion. Why not use pearl onions if that's what you like? It's cooking, you know everyone makes a recipe their own,, it's just a guide..

Thanks for your reply... I realize it is cooking & we can put whatever we have available... I wanted to make sure you didn't leave out a key type of onion from your recipe... I can be very specific on types because there are so many flavors especially with Onions not to drowned out the soup with onion flavor. I will try the scallions, that seems good, but I won't put them in til last to keep some of the flavor. The pearl onions are not so pungent, but sweet, and small, so that when you eat the soup you dont get a half or quarter of onion in your mouth, way too much onion for me or in my mouth at once, & too difficult trying to cut it with a spoon. ~k/f

Now is Crock Pot season. Pull out the crock pots and start the soup! Mmmmm, all kinds for a cold day and share it with others at a pot luck. Feed your kids friends when they stop by. Soup goes far...
