Dr. Fuhrman's Eat to Live Veg-Lentil Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by LadyLaura

Soup to aid in weight loss. From "Eat to Live" by Dr. Fuhrman. Despite the review saying that it couldn't possibly come from this book or this doctor, it was, in fact, copied verbatim from the book.

Easy and SUPER TASTY - I highly recommend it for its healthiness, ease, and simplicity - an easy way to get a week's worth of lunch entree in one pan.<br/><br/>Could always sub some cooked beans instead of some of the lentil or barley, if desired. <br/><br/>I will definitely use a bit more carrots, more celery, and more broth. I used 4 cups vegetable stock and 2 cups chicken stock (since that is what I had on hand), and later ended up needing to add more stock/water, since I simmered the soup (accidentally) about an hour longer than necessary (and it was still perfectly GREAT). I had slightly less lentils than called for, so used 1-1/4 c lentils and 3/4 c barley, and it was FABULOUS.
