Directions

  1. If you are packing this in a thermos, pre-heat the thermos by filling it with boiling water and letting it sit while you do the following:
  2. First, re-constitute the soup with an equal amount of water. Stir well.
  3. Grate the vegetables into the pot. Add the lentils. Season to taste.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Pack into a thermos and go! Or, simmer 2-3 more minutes and eat right away.
  5. Tip: You can grate the vegetables into the pot the night before and leave them there, covered, until ready to go.
  6. Variations: Grate zucchini instead of parsnip. Add minute rice, couscous or cooked pasta. Replace the lentils with canned red beans, pinto beans or black beans.
  7. NOTE: You must use RED lentils in this recipe! Green lentils take much longer to cook. Red lentils cook very quickly.
