Lentil Soup with Basil Biscuits

How about a soup recipe for the “It’s about time rain” weather we are finally having here in So. Cal.

I didn’t plan on blogging this….but it turned out so good that I needed  a place to permanently archive it.  That would be why there is only (1) picture.    Also, I am a cook that doesnt really measure anything, I go by sight and taste, knowing what flavors work and what doesn’t.  A gift I got from my mom….she always cooked from scratch.

So here goes…

Lentil Soup 

8 Cups Of Water
I container of Trader Joes  Vegetable Stock
3 Tbsp Butter
3 Stalks Celery (diced)
1 can Diced Trader Joes Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 package lentils (rinsed)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1 small bag baby spinach
3 carrots (chopped)  I like the multi colored carrots for TJ’s
3 Tbsp Curry Powder
2 Bay leafs
2 tsp of thyme….(give or take)
pepper

chicken/tomato bouillon (to taste)  I use the KNORR brand and its to replace the salt.

*of course you can replace the Trader Joes brand with any brand you want….or have on hand.  I just happen to be a TJ exclusiveness.

Directions:

Literally throw everything in the pot, bring to a boil and then turn down and simmer for about 2.5 hours.

 

Drop Basil Biscuits 

Follow the directions for dumplings on the bisquick box.  HA!  Add in chopped fresh basil.  I replace milk with almond milk.

Bake according to directions.

BAM!  you have yourself an fully satisfying meal.

You can really add anything to your basic biscuit dough; cheddar cheese, green onions, jalapeños.

I would even try dumplings with this soup recipe.  YUM!!

This makes a ton of soup and you will have lots of leftovers.

Let me know if you make it and how it turned out.

Bon Appetite.
