Ingredients

onion
carrot
celery
olive oil
7 cups of water (not 8)
3 large spoonfuls of tomato sauce
dry soup mix

salt OR parmesan cheese


Soup's on!


I'm apartment sitting this week, so I can't go all out cooking


Today, with the cold outside, I felt like some hot soup


Rather than raid the kitchen, I bought a dry soup mix and some veggies


I chose Millie's Lentil

I cut up some onion, carrot, and celery to make a mirepoix heating up in olive oil with a large saucepan


I added water, but 7 80z cups of water (not 8)


also 3 large spoonfuls of tomato sauce


and lastly the dry mix


I've let it simmer this afternoon and the house is now filled with the nice homey aroma of home cooking (and I cheated!)


It could use salt, but I think I will add grated parmesan cheese; that should add the flavor it is needing


I don't normally like bread and butter at home


but this meal begs for it


Pairs Well With
