Lentil Vegetable Soup

I have made this soup enough times that I can confidently post the recipe.

  • 2 Russet potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • Handful baby carrots
  • 3 ounces curly kale
  • 6 ounces lentils
  • Olive oil
  • Soy sauce

Chop and rinse potatoes, onions, carrots, and kale. Rinse lentils. Place in medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover the vegetables (a key ingredient is the use of drinking water, not tap water). Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit another 30 minutes. Add olive oil and soy sauce. Makes 2 quarts.

Cauliflower Chili

This vegetarian chili is made in the microwave. I use a ceramic container with a glass lid for microwave cooking.

  • 1/3 head cauliflower
  • 2 Russet potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 cup curly kale
  • Chili powder
  • Coconut oil

Chop and rinse cauliflower, potatoes, and onion. Place in microwave container and microwave for 7 minutes. Add chopped kale. Microwave for 3 minutes. Stir in chili powder and coconut oil. Let sit for a few minutes. Makes 1 quart.
