The weather is finally starting to get back to normal fall time temps here in Missouri. We’ve had some frost the past two nights. I really enjoy the cooler fall temps, but plants probably won’t take too much more.
I harvested a nice little bunch of carrots today.
I decided to make a nice warm pot of lentil soup for supper. This sounded perfect after a day of working outside in the cooler temps.
I love cooking from scratch and using ingredients that I grew! First you dice up carrots, onions and celery and cook them until tender. I didn’t have celery so I used celery salt instead.
Add in the spices and tomato paste and chicken broth. Rinse the lentils and add them to the pot. Bring this to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 30 min or until lentils are tender.
I served it with Parmesan cheese on top and some Italian bread that I baked and froze a couple weeks ago.
