Here is a quick, cheap soup that ALL of the children love surprisingly!
1 Tbsp Olive or Vegetable Oil
1 Chopped Onion
1 Cup Diced Carrots
4 Cups Canned Chicken Broth (I use Bouillon Cubes)
1 Cup Dry Lentils, rinsed
1/4 Cup Tomato Sauce
Salt and Pepper to Taste
In a large sauce pan saute the onion and carrots in oil for 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring mixture to a boil. Add the lentils and tomato sauce and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until lentils are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I serve this with large hunks of my homemade bread for very satisfying lunch or dinner.
