VEGAN LEMON-LENTIL SOUP & A NEW YEARS REMINDER

January 7, 2014

Instead of a resolution, how about an intention? Instead of a diet, how about a lifestyle change? We don't need to set ourselves up for failure, but be supportive of our nature. Let's get to know ourselves. If we've broken a 'resolution', we haven't given up. Tomorrow is for getting up & trying again. Let's resolve to live with intention. Intention will never fail, because each new moment, breath, pulse, is another chance to be what we seek. Go get 'em.

 

​DELICIOUS LENTIL SOUP

ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2-1 cup chopped onions (depending on how oniony you are)

1 pound brown lentils

4 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 cups chopped kale (without spine)

1/4 lb spaghetti noodles broken in

1-2in pieces (optional)1 level tsp cumin

1/4 tsp yelow curry powdersalt and/or Braggs' amino acids to taste

1/2 tsp pepper

3/4 cup lemon juice

 

directions

1) Heat oil in large pot over med heat. Once the pot is warmed up, add onions and stir until onions begin to turn clear & eventually caramelize, about 7-10 minutes. 

2) Put the lentils, garlic, noodles, cumin, curry powder & pepper into the pot. Pour in enough water so that it is about 2 inches deeper than the lentil mixture. Stir well to loosen browned bits of onion on the bottom of the pot.

3) Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium. 

4) Simmer for 10 min, add kale, simmer for 10 more min uncovered, or until lentils are tender. If soup gets too thick, add a little more water. 

5) Lower heat, add salt and/or Bragg's to taste. Stir in lemon juice.

6) Serve with a piece of toasted bread. We ate it with a dollup of garlic sauce on top & a dash of nutritional yeast (great source of vitamin B). Tastes great over rice too!
