EASY!!! This is soooooooo good and sooooooo filling. You can substitute broccoli for the cauliflower if you prefer or... use both.
2 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
1 or 2 tbsp salsa
pepper to taste
3.5 oz red lentils
I bring the broth & water to a boil, reduce heat, throw everything in and put a lid on the pot and simmer for approx. 1/2 hour, breaking up the cauliflower as it cooks.
I look forward to trying other posted soup recipes. I tried the broccoli with cheese one from the recipe book and it was o.k. only I prefer alot of texture in my soups.
Hope this winds up in the proper spot when I post!
Yield: 1 Vegetable, 1 Protein, 1 Miscellaneous: Garnish ( or 0.5 if you only use 1 tablespoon of salsa in it)

did you use the dry lentils or the canned ones?
This soup sounds great!

I use the dry lentils. I enjoy this soup so much that I'm dissappointed I can only have it twice in one week. It hurts more than the 'red meat once a week restriction'

Justlyn, Its so cold here in Ontario tonight that soup is just what I wanted. I made this recipe and its was nice and tasty - and had a lot of substance to it. I used frozen broccoli since I didnt have any cauliflower. I cut it up in small pieces before cooking. Don't be afraid to use the stems. I like them better than the florets!
Anyway thanks for the recipe. Its very very easy, hearty and tasty.

I'm glad you liked the soup Bailey!!! Yes it is 'brrrrrrrrrrrr' here in Ontario... I found yesterday to be even colder still!!! *ugh* Nothing like piping hot soup on a cold one hey!

Sounds great, Lyn!
btw....my trick with lentils is that I cut them into 1/2 portions and eat them 4 times a week!
Try doubling up the lentils and quadrupling the veggies....then split everything into 4 equal containers and eat them 4 times a week. I bet you won't notice that you're only getting 1/2 the amount of protein! (just make sure you eat a 1/2 protein at breakfast and a full protein at dinner...err or the other way around...and you'll be all set for the day!)
Yummmy...I'm so going to try this!

Good idea to split the soup up Bri... It does make a big batch. Thanks for the tip!
