Lentil Soup

If you start your kids on this early they may just love it as much as my niece and nephew. 

When kids like lentils, they love them with elbow pasta.



Place the lentils 4-5 cups water, 1 t kosher salt and the heel of a piece of parmesan in a covered saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 3-4 hours

Saute the garlic, onion, celery and carrot in 1 T of olive oil, along with a pinch of chili flakes

Add to lentils when they are done simmering.

Also add the tomatoes, red wine, wine vinegar brown sugar.

Stir and bring back to a boil, then simmer about 20 minutes. Adjust seasoning and serve with fresh Parmesan.
