Lovely Lentil Rice Soup

According to my friend, Janette, lentils are the new super food.  I always knew they were tasty, full of protein and fiber, but she read about their anti-cancer properties.  So, there is one more great reason to eat lentils.  And did you know that there are dozens of different types of lentils?  This is my staple lentil soup recipe and I like it because it can easily be embellished or is comforting on its own.  So, curl up with a nice hot cup of lentil soup.

Saute in a large soup pot:

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 carrots
2 leeks
1 onion
2 garlic cloves


1 cup cooked lentils
1/2 cup cooked rice
2 teaspoons dill
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
4 cups of water

Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve it up!
