Hearty Lentil & Buckwheat Soup


{ Eleanor's Original Recipe - Hearty Lentil & Buckwheat Soup }


 INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup lentils (soak for 2-3 hours prior to cooking)
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat (can be omitted but it's pretty good with it)
  • 4 celery stalks chopped
  • 2 medium sized carrots chopped
  • 2 small potatoes cut in squares
  • 1/2 box of Rich Brown Washington Broth (also available at health food markets)
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste


METHOD
  • In a large pot boil the lentils in 2.5 cups of water. Keep adding water throughout cooking so it doesn't dry out. Make it as soupy as you want. Cook for 20 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Add the buckwheat. Cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Add more water as needed.
  • Add the Rich Brown Washington Broth.
  • Add the chopped celery, chopped carrots, and the potatoes. Cook until vegetables are tender.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Eat soup alone or over rice.

Are you in the mood for a hearty healthy meal that will not increase your waist line?  This is a good recipe to get all your veggies and grains into your system to make you feel better and stronger. It is also a very good dish for a chilly day and soup night with the family. My husband and I believe in eating light for dinner. A bowl of this soup hits the spot. :-) Enjoy!
