Prepare the Lentil Soup
Rinse lentils and soak in hot water for 10 minutes.
In four-quart pot, sauté onions in oil until limp.
Add lentils and remaining ingredients.
Cook for 45 minutes. For smoother texture, blend or process briefly.
The step of sautéing onions can be omitted. If omitting, add onion to soup when water boils. If millet is not being used, serve with Nokerlach.
The following can be added for lentil vegetable soup:
• 1/3 cup barley
• 2 carrots, diced
• 2 stalks celery, diced
• 1 zucchini, shredded (unpeeled)
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
Increase water by two cups. Cook ina six-quart pot.
