My mother gave me this recipe. She found it while clipping coupons. It is from S&W. This is the best stew I have ever eaten and my family requests me to make it quite frequently. It has become a "comfort food" for us. Perfect to make if you have leftovers after baking a large turkey or chicken. Can be made vegetarian or vegan if desired.
This is a surprisingly filling, vegetarian, crock pot soup. It is very good, and easy to prepare the night before, or chop the veggies in advance and turn it on before you leave for work in the morning. Goes great with a crusty bread.
This soup is a little spicy, elegant enough for a dinner party, super cheap to make and very tasty... Don't be put off by the lentils - trust me you won't know they are there (and secretly they are so good for you).
They say that the Soup Nazi's restaurant in New York City makes the world's best soup. If you prefer a carnivor's version of mulligatawny soup, try recipe #57831. As requested, I give credit for this copycat recipe to Todd Wilbur. From www.TopSecretRecipes.com
