I finally did it. I made lentils soooo good, I could kiss myself! Hooray! Hooray! I should throw a party. Only took me 3 years.

Trying to clean out the freezer before the move, I found some freezer burnt onions and pre-chopped green peppers to be rid of. What better way to risk freezer burnt anything but to chuck it in a soup? Turned out great!

I’ve attempted cooking with lentils various times but they always come out tasting….well….tasteless. This time I cooked it using various frozen, cooked and fresh vegetables with different spices. My husband inhaled it!

My mother (who isn’t a fan of cooking) made this soup for me last time I traveled  home for a visit. She wanted to make sure I was healthy during the pregnancy and eating well. Thanks, mom. 🙂

(For a true vegetarian version, substitute beef stock for vegetable stock and leave out beef strips.)
Cooks 6 hours on LOW or 2 hours on HIGH.

I’ve never cooked chili with beer before…but hey, I’m always up for something new. And Guinness as my brother says, ‘Is a meal in and of itself” so this one is a hearty stew!

I had to cook dinner in a pinch and didn’t have much on hand, but lentils. I should have used  Alison’s recipe she offered me last time, but I didn’t have access to the laptop. I’m getting awfully dependent on this thing!

So, I tried one with ham since my last one had no flavor. And I will try Alison’s lentil soup when we next have lentils.

I met a colorful character in the blogging world named Alison at Alison Amazed. Born British, but brought up in Canada, her blog is littered with both English and Canadian terms. I adore folks who have one foot in one culture, the other foot in another culture and a finger and toe in a third and fourth. She makes beautiful, vegetarian dishes, but alas, I am not a real cook and need a recipe. Alison gave me directions. Not quite the same. But determined to eat more lentils for the folic acid and the fact that my cousin who lived in Chile for years claims they are so delicious she could eat them daily, I thought I’d give it a try. I can do this….right?

Who am I kidding? This chick needs a recipe. I will never be Rachael Ray. (And that’s okay. I’ve come to terms with it.)

A family member was kind and generous enough to send me one of her cookbooks. She collects cookbooks and reads them like magazines, but this was one she didn’t use much. She’ll be thrilled to find I discovered some recipes I really liked. I tried the black bean recipe courtesy of Kay Ward.
