Lentil Soup: A Favorite Winter Recipe

This soup is delicious, healthful, and easy to make.


1/2 red pepper
1 onion
1 carrot
3/4 cup green lentils
Several cups of chicken stock

Chop the vegetables into small pieces. Sauté in olive oil for about 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the lentils and enough chicken stock to cover; simmer for 45 minutes. Allow to cool a bit, then purée in a blender, adding more chicken stock for the right consistency. Salt to taste, and you are done.
