Lentil Squash Soup

September18

I just made this one up from stuff in my fridge… thought I’d share it because it was literally gourmet good, super easy, super healthy, very filling, and FAST!! Please use all organic ingredients whenever possible. It’s so important for you and the world!! Okay – here you go:

Lentil-Squash Soup
1/2 cup red lentil
1/2 cup regular lentil
2.5 cups water or veggie broth
about a cup of red curry squash peeled and cubed
about a cup of acorn squash peeled and cubed
3 cloves of garlic, cut up randomly
3/4 onion (I used yellow)
dash of sea salt

throw it all in a pressure cooker and rock it on high for five minutes and then let it natural release. If you don’t have a pressure cooker than I’d say just cook it all in a pot until the veggies are all really soft and lentils are done (they cook fast anyway)
Then I pureed it (blender would work), served it with drizzled olive oil on top and finely diced chives. Salt and pepper to taste (We used Braggs Liquid Amino Acid instead of salt on the soup, and we didn’t use the pepper and didn’t miss it at all but I think it also would be good with it on top.)

Then if you REALLY want to go nuts and make it the perfect healthy meal – (also SUPER easy) serve it with a Millet Loaf instead of fattening and unhealthy bread. Zeke and I had it for lunch the next day and it was even better. You just have to thin it out a bunch when reheating. Use water or Veggie Broth. Easy.

Let me know if you try it and what you think.
