6 Cups water or broth
2 Cups (1 bag) Lentils
1 Cup Chopped Onion
1 tsp Basil
2 Stalks Chunked Celery
1 Can Stewed/diced tomatoes
1 Clove Crushed/Chopped Garlic
1 Can Chopped Mushrooms
2 tsp Salt
4 Chunked Carrots
4 Peeled & Chunked potatoes (I use sweet for glycemic index)
Sort and rinse lentils into heavy pot. Add water or broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 1 hour. Add remaining ingredients and let simmer 1 additional hour.
That’s it! So simple and so amazingly delicious! I like to serve it with some homemade cornbread or even some sourdough biscuits.
As with most soups/stews, it is just amazing (if not more amazing) as a leftover because the flavors have had a chance to marry even more!
I get so frustrated when I find a recipe on line and the author spends half of the post telling you about their memories associated with the item. So, I did not do that to you! Let me know if you liked this recipe and I’ll share some more.
