Red Lentil Soup

This is from "Vegetarian: Just Great Recipes (Treats series)". I couldn't find this book online anywhere, though I did find other books from the series.

Anyways, recipe:

Red Lentil Soup
2 tbsp butter
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 cups red lentils
1 litre vegetable stock
1 tbsp tomato concentrate
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
Croutons, to serve

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onions until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the lentils, stock, and tomato concentrate. Season with salt. Cook until the lentils are tender, 25-30 minutes. Remove from the heat and chop in a food processor until smooth. Return to the saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes to reheat. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve hot with the croutons on the side.

So simple right??? And it is soooooooooooo delicious!!!!! =D The entire time it was cooking, I was drooling just waiting for the moment I could taste it. And the wait was well worth it!

As delicious as lentils are, they are amazingly healthy for you too! Check out this website to learn more about the health benefits lentils offer, as well as other info on them! =D
