Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3/4 cup lentils, sorted and rinsed
    3/4 cup diced carrot
    3/4 cup diced celery
    3/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup wild rice
    1/4 cup converted rice (like Uncle Ben's)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    5 cups water
    4 teaspoons vegetable bouillon seasoning
    1 bay leaf
    1 14-1/2 oz. can cut up tomatoes
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
    2 tablespoons minced fresh basil, optional
    V-8 or tomato juice or water, optional


Directions

Combine all ingredients on the list through the canned tomatoes in a large pot (do not add the Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, parsley or basil yet). Bring to a boil, then simmer until lentils and rice are tender (about 35-45 minutes). Remove the bay leaf. Scoop out about two cups of the soup and blend well in the blender. Return the blended soup to the pot. Now stir in the Worcestershire sauce, the apple cider vinegar, the fresh parsley (and the fresh basil if using). You should have about 8 cups of soup. If you don't have 8 cups, or if you prefer a thinner soup you can stir in some V-8, tomato juice, or water as you wish. Makes 4 servings, 2 cups each.

  • Just what I was looking for in a non-protein soup. So many soups are so blah and uninteresting. This one was very good. I skipped the converted rice and went with all wild, balsamic vinegar, plus some red wine and mushrooms. Good for dinner on the Serotonin Power Diet! Definitely add the basil. - 11/5/07
