Lentil Goodness 

Yes, I know it’s bloody hot outside…but I love lentils and I love lentil soup and while my ingredients are not typical for lentil soup, they make it extraordinary.

1 Whole chopped yellow onion 

Chopped garlic cloves 1-2

1 carrot, sliced

1 celery stalk, chopped 

About 1 1/2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced 

Two ears of fresh shucked corn 

2 cups lentils ( I use small green ones from Trader Joe’s)

1 Large can of diced tomatoes 

About 4 cups of chicken stock 

Sauté the cabbage, onions, garlic, carrots and celery 

Add the diced tomatoes and chicken stock 

Add in the corn and 1 bay leaf some salt and pepper to taste and some crushed red pepper for a little spice 

Stir and let heat up for about 30-40 min on stove over a medium to low heat 

Then serve and enjoy the smells and warmth and goodness!
