Lentil Soup

This past week I made a very fulfilling vegan meal with a hearty Lentil soup with squash. It was so quick, easy and delish!

1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 Medium Butternut squash (peeled, seeded and cubed)
1 medium onion (diced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp chili powder (optional)
Fresh cracked pepper (to taste)
1 Tbs Tomato Paste
1 1/2 cups Lentils
1 can chickpeas (drained)
4 cups vegetable stock
Rind of 1 lemon
Big handful of chopped fresh parsley
Lemon wedges Lemon wedges

Preparation:
In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat; fry cumin seeds for 1 minute. Add squash, onion, garlic, chili powder, pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add lentils, chickpeas, stock and lemon rind; cover and simmer until squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Discard lemon rind. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.

I accompanied this soup with some fresh Whole Wheat French bread Yummmy!

  1. In fact, even those people who have bad credits can apply for it.
    Is there any reason why any company should offer
    a car loan to anybody with a poor credit record.
    When you’re negotiated the best deal, let the dealership know that you have pre-approved financing and give the finance manager a chance to beat
    your rate.
