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