How is your new year going so far? Are you off to a healthy start? I’m not sure how many people actually start their “healthy diets” on New Years day being that it’s still a holiday and some celebrating still going on. Today felt a lot like Christmas for me as we spent the day at my in laws with lots of food and desserts. Yes, I indulged in some dessert.
Are you as cold as I am right now? All I want is hot tea and soup these days so I’m sharing a Lentil and Brown Rice Soup Recipe to keep you warm too. Its one of my go to recipes during the week. Its healthy, simple and tastes good.
Once I wash and chop up the onion, carrots and celery, I throw in a pan and sauté with about 1tbs of olive oil
Its smells so good when its cooking
Note: the brown rice and lentils absorb a lot of the water so if you’re wanting more of a liquid soup, add more water
Here’s a picture of it for leftovers the next day. I think it might even taste better the day after.
1 Tbs of olive oil
1 organic onion
4 organic celery stalks
4 organic carrots
1 cup of brown rice
1 cup of Lentils
1 container of organic vegetable broth plus 2-3 cups of water (total of 6-8 cups of liquid)
1.Chop up onion, carrots and celery and place into pan with 1tbs of Olive Oil simmering for 5 minutes or until softened.
2. Add in vegetable broth plus 2-3 cups of water
3. Bring to boil, cover with lid and cook on low for 1 hour
It takes less than 15 minutes to prep which makes it a perfect dish on busy days.
I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions.
