Rosemary Lentil Vegetable Soup

"A savory herbed vegan lentil-vegetable soup. If you include the jalapeno pepper, it has a nice spicy kick - Leave it out if you want a milder soup. Great for cold winter days."

    I made this and my husband and I both loved it. It was enough for 2 dinners and 2 lunches each.


Read my gluten-free blog <a href="">here</a>. I love cooking and always have. I learned how to cook as a young kid and I've worked as a prep cook for a catering company and for a restaurant though I am no longer working in that industry. Being a food lover, it was an unpleasant surprise to develop major food intolerances within the past few years. I've been 100% gluten-free since 07/06 out of medical necessity and am cutting down on dairy and soy since they make me ill in large quantities. I'm also working on becoming kosher. So, you'll see reflected in my recipes my recent interest in developing recipes that are both kosher and suitable for people with food allergies, without sacrificing taste. And there's lots of good stuff in my cookbooks for those of you with no food allergies, too, of course! My areas of specialty are gluten-free baking and cooking, dairy substitution, vegan and vegetarian dishes, and Jewish cooking.
