Fat Free Lentil Soup!
from Vegetarian Resource Center - Boston, USA

This recipe is made with no added fat and the ingredients all have a negligible amount of fat if any!

  • 2 Cups dried Lentils
  • 1 Cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 t garlic powder or 1t granulated garlic (there is a difference)
  • 1/4 t ground black pepper
  • 1T Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 Cup diced Celery
  • 1 Cup diced Carrot
Dump all of the ingredients in a stock pot with 8 cups of water bring mixture to a rolling boil and lower heat to a light boil.
let cook until lentils are tender, and mixture thickens a little;
approximately 40-45 minutes.

I like this one because it's an easy one to prepare and it cooks on the burner while you are doing other things, making it a real time saver too!
