"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Lentil Soup

We had a rainy weekend and our weather has been cold for California's standards.
I made a quick and easy Lentil soup which was warm and comforting. Here are the directions:

                                              Chop 1 1/2 cup of celery
                                             Dice 1 onion
                                             Chop 1 cup of carrots
                                   1 cup of frozen or drained canned peas
                                    1  1/2 cup washed and drained Lentils
                                          1 cup Marinara sauce :any flavor

                              Add 4 1/2 cups of water  or 3 1/2 cups of water plus 1 cup chicken or beef stock. I did add more water as the Lentils swelled. I like a soup consistency. Boil until the Lentils are just soft enough to bite: 25 min. to 1/2 hour. Keep checking them. Season well to your own liking. Serve with some grated cheese on top and Enjoy!
