  • All the time. Vegetable beef, chicken noodle or rice, stews, chilis, potato, cheese, other kinds of vegetable...Split pea, my favorite, is about the only kind I have never attempted to make.

  • Lentil Soup - This is the recipe I start with. I add some diced mushrooms, shredded zucchini, chopped cauliflower, whatever is around; I use all broth and no water
    2 cups lentils, sorted and rinsed
    4 cups water
    4 cups vegetable broth or water
    1 large onion, chopped
    1/2 cup chopped carrot
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    1 clove garlic, minced
    3 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1 (16 oz) can tomatoes and their juice, cup up
    2 Tbsp red wine vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
    1 cup uncooked very small whole wheat pasta such as ditalini or elbows (optional)
    parmesan cheese (to serve)

  • Place lentils in large soup pot with water, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, parsley, pepper, oregano. Cover pan and simmer 1 hour. NOTE: make sure that the lentils are completely cooked before adding salt or acid.
    Add tomatoes and their juice, salt and vinegar. Simmer 30 minutes longer, adding 1 cup uncooked very small pasta (such as ditalini or elbows) if desired. I also add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil.
    Serve with more vinegar and parmesan cheese.

  • Thanks rkoloms...LOVE lentil soup!

    My newest favorite has been split pea in the crock pot. I put in the crock pot- chopped up celery with leaves too, shallots, carrots and some minced garlic, about 10 cups of chicken stock and 2 bay leaves, salt and pepper and some celery salt. Add 1 pound of the dried green split peas and one frozen or fresh ham shank. Cook on high for 8 hours or on low for 5 hours. Make some home made garlic croutons and you are in business!
