Lent’il Soup
Yield: 5-6 cups

Ingredients:
1 cup red lentil beans
1 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 of a jalapeno minced
1/4 cup diced celery
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced red onions
1/4 cup vegetable spice mix
5-6 cups water
1 lemon

Directions:
Heat olive oil in a soup pan. Sauté the garlic, jalapeño, and red onions for about 2-3 minutes over high heat. Add in the carrots and celery and sauté for another few more minutes. Soak lentils in water for 15-20 minutes and then rinse them. Add 5 cups of water and the vegetable spice mix. Bring to a boil, add lentils, then turn down heat to simmer, uncovered, for about 25-30 until lentils are thick and fluffy. Add more water if thinner soup is desired.
Serve with squeezed lemon.
