Easy Lentil Soup

Lentils pack great nutritional value & many health benefits... great for you & the whole family!
Store well in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. An additional tip: when my daughter was a baby, I stored lentil soup in mini glass containers in the freezer.. why?? Who has time to make something healthy 24/7 & it's a better option then store bought baby food. Below is my mom's recipe.

RECIPE:
2 Roma Tomatoes
1/4 chopped onion
1 minced garlic clove
1 cup of Dry Lentils
1 1/2 Tb of Salt 

Chop all ingredients...


Saute Garlic & Onion (2 mins.)

Add in chopped tomato & cook down until simmers..

Smash everything down with a potato smasher... Season with salt & add lentils..

Fill your pot 3/4 the way up.. Remember Lentils expand & absorb water..
Cook for 45 mins. on a low simmer..


Taste & maybe adjust seasonings.. add a splash of Lime juice!


ENJOY!

  2. "I can only guess, since I haven't made it that way. I would use about 2 cups chicken stock to simmer the ingredients on the stove, then add the coconut milk when the sweet potatoes are tender. Be sure the stock is mostly cooked away before you add the coconut milk. Delete Skype Account Watch Cartoons Online Sports Streaming Sites Movie Streaming Sites Speed Dating Questions
