  • Head of cauliflower - broken into florets
  • 5 stalks celery
  • Bag of multicolored organic carrots
  • 2C red lentils
  • Spices: garlic powder, curry, parsley, dash basil to taste (or use fresh)

Directions:

  • Fill a medium size pot with water
  • Add cauliflower, celery, carrots, parsley and bring to a simmer
  • Cover and continue to cook on low
  • In separate pan, brown onion and red pepper in a little olive oil
  • Add to vegetables and continue cooking until everything is tender
  • Strain out vegetables and blend in food processor or blender until creamy, keep a few chunky bits if you like
  • Return mixture to water
  • Add 2 cups uncooked lentils
  • Add spices to taste
  • Stir, cover and cook on low until lentils are soft
