In Response 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.
