Thanks Nikki for your Lentil soup.  When we had our snow storm I had to cook every night.  Then the following week we had something  I called SNOW STORM SOUP with all the leftovers.  Husband raved about it.  I think it was because I had home-made hot bread to serve with it.  It was similar to my pasta fazoo(sp).  I don't have a recipe as it was all the leftovers from the week which was chicken, pork roast, turkey eckridge sausage, and even some BBQ pulled pork.  I thought I would just try my hand at burgoo.  LOL  I did put in lentils and all the veggies out of the fridge.  I even put in some mashed potatoes which actually thickened the soup to make it hearty.  Thus the name SNOW STORM SOUP.

That is a perfect name. 
It is family names like that that kids remember.  My Mom used to make what she called "Chuck Wagon Stew"  all it was was the same sauce she used on pasta but she made elbow macaroni and mixed the two together.  How she came up with the name she did is beyond me but we loved it.

Hi  NIKKI;
 GRANA  here;
 I just now [une]  found this recipe, it's past he soup sesason butI intend to make this on a cool day
No mention of pre- soaking of beans, but assume they should be?; an oversight , on yourpart or  or poor vision on my part?I'll probably ad the carrots in a largeamountjust like you , maybe even parsnips.??????????????thanks  for sharing





ponse to A GREAT Soup:
I got this from a friend for Christmas.  She layered all the dry ingredients in a big jar.  It made the best soup so I thought I would share. Lentil and Brown Rice Soup 5 Cups low fat chicken broth 3 Cups Water 1 1/2 Cups lentils 1 Cup brown rice 1 35 ounce can tomatoes, drain, reserve juice and chop tomatoes 3 Carrots. (when I added the carrots I used a 1 pound bag..I love carrots) 1 large onion chopped 1 stalk celery, chopped 1/2 tsp dry basil 1/2 tsp dry thyme 1 bay leaf 1/2 Cup minced parsley 2 Tb cider vinegar In a large pot combine all ingredients except parsley and vinegar. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.  Simmer for 45 to 55 minutes. Stir in parsley and cider vinegar, remove bay leaf and serve. When my friend layered this in a jar she also added dried red kidney beans, dry garbanzo beans and dry navy beans, probably about 1/2 cup of each.  The liquid was increased a bit as well.  But the recipe is pretty forgiving and can be adjusted for any type of beans.

Although it's hot here year round,  we can't let the heat stop us from enjoying a good bowl of soup while the A/C is cranking out.  This sounds really delish!  I want to give it a try soon.  Considering giving it to my fellow school teachers as a gift come December.  Thanks for sharing.

Ann, I just now saw your question on the soup.  No need to presoak any of it.  The instructions were to dump it all in the kettle and simmer.
I suppose if you did not want to cook it as long you could soak overnight.  But it might be just as easy to pour it all in a crock pot and let it go all day.
Keep it in mind once the temperatures go below 100 Laughing

Way too hot to even think about soup today lol.  But what a great idea for gifts during the colder months.  My cousin(who lives alone and doesn't cook much) might even be able to master this one.  Of course he will be eating this for a lonnnnnnng time unless he freezes some of it lol.

Nikki I actually made up a bunch of different dry mixes including soup.These make wonderful gifts .During the holidays there is always so much food and a "Jar Gift" is great something that can be stored and made after the holidays.There are different sites that are dedicated only to jar gifts many have labels and instructions that can be printed and added to the jar gift giving it a finished look,most of these sites are free.We do have some jar gifts and labels here on VBB.The sky is the limited when it comes to jar gifts.Just use your imagination and have fun with it.

Mix all the dry stuff that would go in the jar and break it into zip top bags or 1 Qt. Mason jars.  Then just divide the rest of the ingredients into the number of portions that you have divided the dry stuff into.  In reality you could keep all the veggies the same you would just have more vegetables in each batch of soup.

Funny thing is I purchased a container identified as "Gourmet Bean Blend" it is a 5.5 pound container and has a variety of beans, peas and lentils.
It is pretty much the same mixture as what I was given.  (no rice in the container I purchased) but I have used it for all sorts of things, I made a version of baked beans, I have added it to soup as well as chili.  I am almost out and I think I will buy bags of peas, beans and lentils and make my own blend.
Funny thing is there is no list of ingredients that tell what ones are in the blend. The instructions are though to soak in cold water for 4 hours.  I do notice that there are no kidney beans or large lima beans as I think they would require longer cooking.
