There is nothing like a healthy and hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day! On a snowy day here last week, I decided to make one my favorite soups, Vegan Indian Red Lentil Vegetable! I made a very large pot so I could have plenty of left-overs. Here is my recipe, below, that will feed a family of four and then some!

Ingredients:

4-5 carrots, chopped

4-5 peeled potatoes, chopped

2-3 celery stalks, chopped

½ medium onion, chopped

4-5 broccoli florets, chopped

2 medium tomatoes, chopped (or 1 8oz can chopped tomatoes)

2 cups red or green chard, chopped

3-4 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp each of fresh oregano, sage, marjoram, basil

1 packet Gogi Indian mix

1 cup red lentils

1 cup brown rice (or a rice mix)

5-6 cups water

Process:

  1. Boil water and add rice and onions. Cook for about 10 minutes on high heat.
  2. Add all vegetables and all spices except potatoes and chard. Turn down to medium or medium low heat. Cook for 25 minutes.
  3. Add lentils and potatoes and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat or until both are done.
  4. Add chard and cook for 5 minutes longer or until chard is soft.

Enjoy!
