Yellow Lentil Soup


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 med. Carrots, chopped
  • 2 c. yellow lentils (red when dry)
  • ½ c. rice (I like brown basmati best)
  • 8-11 c. water
  • 2 t. cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Saute onion in oil until browned (this is optional—if I’m in a hurry, I just chop the onion and add it to the other ingredients without sauteing in oil). Add remaining ingredients and simmer about 2-3 hours (great in Crock Pot).
