Sounds good! I made some lentil soup just the other day. My 6 and 3 year olds wouldn't touch it but my 9 month old couldn't get enough (the resulting diaper change was pretty rough, though) :eek:

Whenever I make a beany sort of soup, I toast some cumin seeds in the oil before adding the veggies. It doesn't add a big cumin-y flavor but it's a nice little surprise when you crunch one.

I like to take 1/2 of it out, blend it, and put it back in. Yum. Creamy lentil soup.

PS. hand blenders rock.

This recipe sounds wonderful-Loaded with vitamins and minerals and VEGETARIAN too! Meat doesn't like me too much anymore. I have not been in the kitchen for about 2 years. This inspires to return. DH is a great cook!

I am learning why they called my Becky Crocker in college. That was better than Suzy Stitch and Stir. Back then it was called "Home Ec." I am soooo glad they changed the field to Family and Consumer Sciences. I have the FACS, nothing but the FACS, ma'am.
