Healthy Vegetarian Recipes.

1. 1 cup red lentils.

2. 1/4 cup red onions.

3. 12 oz vegetable stock (chicken stock optional).

4. 12 oz water.

5. add salt and pepper to taste.


This is a variation of my split pea soup with a different bean. I have done the same recipe with other beans and made a very tasty soup. When you cook different peas and beans it requires different cooking times. Rinse your beans completely. You do not need to pre-soak or quick soak since they are so small, but cook everything slow until the beans are soft. Once it cools, place all in a blender and blend until smooth.
