i’m super happy to share this recipe i made up. my lentil soup is royal
lentils, black beans (red beans, whatever beans)
chicken or veg broth. Pacific brand is my shit
chicken, ground beef, and or andouille sausage
cherry tomatoes, green pepper (sub red), onion
carrots, potatoes if you fancy
salt, pepper, tumeric, garlic, lemon, ginger root, dill weed
+ get stoned (optional)
+ chop all vegetables. finely chop the ginger and garlic. leave the lemon alone.
+ slice your chicken breast into strips and pull it apart. this is easier to do with fresh chicken.
+ 1:1 ratio of broth to water. i use half the box of broth, and i add water from the boiled chicken cuz 1) it’s already hot and 2) i’m a meat eater so it’s just diluted chicken broth
+ wash the canned beans/lentils, wash and add to broth. traditional way: soak lentils and beans for a little over an hour; add to broth
+ add all that other shit. again, i’m a meat eater so i add my ground beef here. allow that pot some space & time.
+ i use all my seasonings to taste. salt gets added last. cinnamon is so awesome, don’t use too much though. i got the idea from the back of some Tagine sold at whole foods. that’s a bomb ass seasoning by the way.
+ don’t forget to throw that fancy dill weed in there and squeeze a half lemon into the mix. use a spoon/stirrer that has holes in it. if not stir super well.
the lentil soup should look pretty chunky and smell/taste amazeballs. mine did!
