Now that we are back in cooler weather we like to have some hot soup to keep us occupied during our long watches at night. Before we leave I make this fast and easy Lentil Soup that doesn’t require any perishable ingredients.
1/2 large onion
1 14oz can mixed vegetables
4 cups water or broth
1 cup dry lentils
2-3 Tbsp bouillon powder (less/none if using broth)
1-2 Tbsp curry powder
1/2-1 Tbsp paprika powder
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large pot cook onions in oil until tender. Add vegetables and water. Bring to a boil. Add lentils (1/2 cup more if you like very thick soup). Add minimum amounts of bullion and spices – then add more to taste. Cover and simmer until lentils are cooked – about one hour.
