Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of soup? I'm definitely not a food stylist, nor a professional photographer, but I have to admit, this soup isn't exactly photogenic to start with. This is such an easy and delicious recipe, though, I had to try, regardless of the poor result.
I've never cooked lentils before, and the first time I made it, I made a half batch, just in case we didn't like it. I thought I might have to cajole my family into eating it, but all if took was one try and it received thumbs up from each of us.
- 1 pound dry lentils
- 2 bags of broccoli slaw
- chicken or vegetable stock (about 8 cups) fresh, packaged, or from bouillon or base.
- 1-2 T dried onion flakes
And that's it! Every time I make this, I tell myself that the next time I'm going to add something to make it little prettier, like a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste. So far, though, we just over look the dish-waterish appearance and enjoy the flavor!
This recipe is easy, inexpensive, makes a big batch so there's enough for freezing or leftovers, and is one of those dishes that's actually better the next day.
