Hello there! guess you’ve had enough of the stories and the informations about this and that in the page and might be wondering if it is time for something different? Alrighty then dear visitor, here i am sharing my recipe on how to prepare yourself a warm, yunmy curried lentil soup as a reward for all the hours of the day you went through đŸ™‚

Required ingredients:

2 cups lentils
3 small idaho potatoes, cleaned and cubed
1 medium to largish sweet yellow onion, chopped
1 red pepper, cleaned and chopped
2 -3 cups v-8 juice
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1.5 tablespoons dairy Hollow House curry mix blend(this is from the Passionate Vegetarian by Crescent Dragonwagon)
1 teaspoon powdered garlic
2 carrots, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 pound small mushrooms,cleaned and left whole
4 tablespoons butter
1/2  to 1 cup white flour
1 cup dry tvp, rehydrated in 1 cup of your favorite broth. It should be strongly flavored .
salt to taste for both the potato cooking water and the soup.

Instructions:

In a 3 quart pot boil potatoes in water to cover, just until done. Put  the potatoes in a large oval crock pot, keeping the water in the pot. Add the two cups of lentils and the v8 juice to make up enough liquid to cook the lentils. when they are done, add all of it to the crockpot and add enough of the remaining v8 juice to make the soup a bit thinner than the consistency you like.Add the TVP to the crockpot.

In the same pot again, melt the butter and add the onions,carrots,and red pepper. Saute till almost tender. Start sifting the flour in slowly and stir all the time now ….keep the heat on low and add some liquid from the soup. Keep adding flour and stir constantly. Add a bit of liquid in between the flour siftings until you have a nice thick consistency. Take off heat and stir into the soup. Decide  how thick you want the soup and add more flour slowly, stirring all the while so it doesn’t form lumps.
Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Enjoy……
