Here, we're aiming at the cook with more to do with his/her time than slave over a stove.
So here it is; Lentil Soup, quick-style.
1lb Carrots, (nicely chopped or brutally massacred in a blender)
1lb Rutabaga (Turnip to the rest of the world) treated as above.
One large onion (chopped, same as above, don’t cut yourself, but don’t go all crazy careful either)
Half a dozen Potatoes (chopped into small cubes)
(A healthy alternative to the potatoes here is half a cauliflower)
½ cup of RED Lentils
4 chicken stock cubes
Add to ½ pot of water.
Boil for a good hour, stirring regularly.
(Watch and not stick to bottom of pan)
Add cubes of the secret ingredient below to flavor.
And why not go see more recipes here.... a whole new way to think of soup.
