Monday Munchies...

I mentioned last week that I made Red Lentil Soup.  
Stick around long enough and you'll learn at this about me: I love soup.  Not only do I love it, but it's my secret (well, not now) weight loss tip.  It's so tasty and filling, and especially warming now that we're in the cold winter months!  Who doesn't appreciate a nice, warm, hearty soup!

Red Lentil Soup
Onions
Carrots
Red Lentils
Crushed Tomatoes (Large can)
Tomato Paste (Small can)
Leeks 

 
 
 
I made a large pot of this, and in order to do so, I doubled the recipe.  I will give you the regular recipe, and just know that if you want a full large pot, as oppose to a half large pot, double it.

1.  Sautee onions
2.  Pour in 1 large can of the crushed tomatoes, and 1 small can of the tomato paste.  
3.  Add in cut up leeks, carrots (I do baby carrots-just eliminates some work for me), and 2 cups red lentils.  
4.  I've found that it's better to eye the water, as oppose to give an exact measurement.  Fill the pot with water until the ingredients are almost covered with water.  
5.  Boil, then simmer for at least an hour, but the longer it goes (don't forget to stir!) the softer the lentils will be. 
6.  Add salt at the end-of just let people add individually to their bowl.

  1. This looks delicious--have to try it! Btw, the rug is from a Joss and Main sale. A bit small for the space, but those rugs are a fortune, even on sale!

  2. It is delicious! Yeah, the stuff on there is a good deal, but still super pricey! This is the rug I got for the boys room, VERY reasonably priced! http://www.landofnod.com/magic-carpet-non-flying-edition-aqua/f9736
