Lentil Soup - SRC


By now you know, I love Secret Recipe Club Reveals, and it is that time again.  I had such fun exploring my assigned blog, Jenny's Cookbook.  She has a plethora of wonderful looking dishes and I ended up selecting two.  It was hard enough to get down to just two and I hope to get back there and make some more.  Thanks Jenny for offering such a great selection.

 I made another lentil soup, a few days ago and both hubby and I loved it so I decided to try another one and we love this one, even more.

Lentil Soup  (adapted from Jenny's Cookbook)

Ingredients

1 onion diced
1 large carrot diced
2 celery stalks diced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups dry lentils
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp dry dill
1 tsp chili powder
salt & pepper to taste
5 cups water
1 19oz can diced canned tomatoes with juice
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
Lemons


Method:
 

Cook the vegetables in oil until they're tender. Stir in lentils to coat and stir in spices.

Cover with water and simmer until the lentils are tender. If it seems too thick add more water.  (
I did have to add water and added two cups.)

Add the can of tomatoes with their juices and stir. Add parsley and cook for another 5 or 10 minutes.

Serve with a squeeze of lemon.


Eat and enjoy!
