Easy Lentil Soup


■about 5 cups fresh tomatoes
■1 cup sprouted lentils
■2 onions
■5 cups vegetable stock
■1 tsp brown sugar
■fresh or dried basil
■olive oil

1.Place the fresh tomatoes in a pan of very hot water for 1 minute, fish them out with a slotted spoon and peel away the skin. Set them aside for use later on.
2.Peel and roughly chop the onion and rinse the lentils in a colander.
3.Cook the onion in a little olive oil in a large saucepan, until golden.
4.Add the lentils, tomatoes, stock, basil and seasoning and stir well.
5.Bring to the boil and simmer gently for about 30 minutes.
6.Blend the soup, adjust the seasoning and if necessary, thin it down with a little more stock or tomato juice.

Do you suppose this is how Jacob made it? (Gen 25:34)??

    Thanks for the link. We had lentil stew on Friday night, and even my daughter ate some! Because it was in the parsha, she said.

    Hi! Fantastic web site, I really like your writing style. Very distinctive and concise. On a lot of blogs people just drone on and on, but not you – very nice. I found your site while looking for another one on Bing. I don’t have time to read all the recipes right now, but I have bookmarked the home page and will visit again very soon to see the latest. I love reading about cooking, it is my favorite hobby. The recipes on your site are incredible. I can’t wait to try them out on my family. They think I’m crazy (and maybe they are right lol) when they see me at work in the kitchen. Visit my site if you’d like to read more. Thank you again for a great web site. Keep up the great work!
