    1. 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. 2
      First, re-constitute the soup with an equal amount of water. Stir well.
    3. 3
      Grate the vegetables into the pot. Add the lentils. Season to taste.
    4. 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. 5
      Tip: You can grate the vegetables into the pot the night before and leave them there, covered, until ready to go.
    6. 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. 7
      NOTE: You must use RED lentils in this recipe! Green lentils take much longer to cook. Red lentils cook very quickly.

      Very tasty soup, just what the doctor ordered! I used whole tomatoes and tomato puree with some salt instead of condensed soup, and I threw half a turnip I had in the fridge. Very easy, used what I had on hand. I ignored the other review, they obviously did it wrong!!

      Sorry! This might just have been me, but I didn't think lentils took that short a time to cook... aren't they normally 30 minutes? Anyway, mine were still hard. A good idea though, so I might try it with cooked beans next time. OH WAIT... were they meant to be COOKED lentils?
