Sorry folks no pictures of this one. This is not a pretty dish. In fact, its down right ugly, but it sure is good. Feel free to omit or sub out any veggies that aren't to your taste. Really this is a versatile little soup.
Lentil and Veggie Soup
1 Tbs. Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped
4 c. veggie stock
1 1/2 c. lentils
1 small butternut squash, peeled and chopped
1 package frozen spinach
Heat oil and saute onions, garlic, carrots and celery until soft
Add lentils, broth and squash. If necessary, add water until all ingredients are covered. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
Cook 20-30 minutes or until lentils and squash are tender. Add spinach. Season her up- really any way you like. I like a bit of spice so just some salt, pepper and red pepper flakes did the job.
