From "A Beautiful Bowl of Soup"...just got this book from the library; haven't tried the recipes, but some of them look very tasty. I will probably modify them, but these are the actual ingredients from the original recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in pot over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and garlic, cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add cumin & coriander; stir for about 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in 6 cups of vegetable stock, the lentils, carrots, celery leaves, and red pepper flakes.
  5. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
  7. Stir in remaining 2 cups of stock and lemon juice.
  8. Season to taste.

Delicious and easy. I especially liked the lemon splash that added to the flavors. It made a lovely lunch with a whole wheat bun on the side. Made for PAC, Spring2014.
