    Meatless Lentil Soup

    This has been my husbandís favorite soup our whole 30-year married life. He enjoys taking a thermos of it to work during the winter. Itís delicious served with warm biscuits or bread. Ė Janet Chase Berrien Springs, Michigan

    Prep: 15 min.
    Cook: 35 min.
    Yield: 8 servings (3 qt)

    2 large carrots, halved and sliced
    2 celery ribs, sliced
    1 medium onion, chopped
    10 cups water
    1 pkg. (16 oz) dried lentils, rinsed
    4 small red potatoes, diced
    2 bay leaves
    2 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper

    In a large nonstick saucepan coated with cooking spray, cook the carrots, celery and onion over medium heat for 5 minutes.

    Stir in the water, lentils, potatoes, bay leaves, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-35 minutes or until lentils are tender. Discard bay leaves.

    Nutrition facts: 1 Ĺ cups equals 245 calories, 1 g fat (trace saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 61 mg sodium, 44 g carbohydrate, 19 g fiber, 16 g protein.


    Source: This was printed in the newest Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine October/November 2012. They give a per serving cost of $.27. Ė if they base it on the 8 servings they give, thatís $2.16 total for the recipe. You could probably extend this out by adding in more potatoes.
    I have not tried this recipe yet.

    I love this recipe but we occasionally add about 2 tsp of turmeric during the winter months, just for the added kick and health benefits. Delicious, filling and healthy.
    ~Enjoy!~
