Lentil Soup [Vegan Mofo]
Vegan Month of Food marches on...
Lentil soup is one of my favorites to make because it is so simple and lentils cook so easily - no soaking necessary.
For this soup, I sauteed some onions and garlic in olive oil, and added about 2 cups of diced up potatoes and 1.5-2 cups of diced carrots. I added about .5cup of butternut squash that was diced, 2 cups of dry lentils, and probably 6-8 cups of water. I also added a ton of curry powder and some salt. I brought the whole thing to a boil, then put it to a simmer until everything was tender and cooked through. I also added more water as it cooked. This made a TON of soup and I've been eating leftovers for days.
