This is so nice!

I thought it would be fun to share recipes. Here's mine for

Beef Lentil Soup

8 Cups water
2 cups lentils
1 pound stew beef
1/2 sweet onion chopped fine
1 pound bag baby carrots sliced into small rounds
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
2 Tablespoons Worchestershire Sauce
3 Tablespoons granular beef bouillon
1/8 tsp. pepper

Rinse lentils in colander
Cut beef into small (about 1/2inch) pieces
Sear beef in skillet while bringing water and lentils to a boil
Add beef to boiling lentils
Add oinon, garlic, Worchestershire Sauce, bouillon, and pepper
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes or until lentils are tender, stir occasionally
Add cut carrots
Cover and continue to simmer until carrots are tender

Serve with home made cornbread and real butter.

Oh I am going to love this topic!!!!

Not because I'll have anything to share, but I'll finally figure out what I can cook. I hate to cook and so finding some easy but good recipes will be great!

This is the recipe that evolved from my grower's box disaster:

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks.
2 large red onions peeled and quartered
1 large bag of frozen broadbeans
500grams of dried red lentils
4 fresh carrots cut into chunks (wash, don't peel)
1 large pointed red pepper, seeded and cut into chunks
Cover with boiling water and season to taste
(for me this is always a couple of bay leaves, garlic and ground pepper)
This time I had a small chunk of leftover ham, but it isn't necessary. If there is no meat, I add a bit of oil for flavour.

Cook in crockpot for 2 hours on high. After a couple of hours, scooped up the big pieces and 'chunkify' them with the food processor, then add back in to cook for another hour.

Great hot but also good cold, like gaspacho.
Warm wishes,
