Lentil & corn soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 medium Onion, chopped
2 mediums Carrots, sliced
2 tablespoons Water, stock, or sherry for
Sauteing
7 cups Water
¾ cup Dried lentils
2 mediums Tomatoes
1 cup Fresh or frozen corn
1 small Sweet potato, diced
4 teaspoons Tamari or soy sauce
1 cup Cooked brown rice
2 tablespoons Chopped fresh parsley (I
Double this amount)

Corn and sweet potatoes give this soup a nice sweetness. It's adapted from Mark Bricklin's _Lose Weight Naturally Cookbook_ (Rodale), which uses too much meat and dairy for our purposes; this one, however, adapts well by substituting for the oil in the saute. It also freezes and microwaves well for brown-bag lunches.

Saute the onion and carrots in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent.

Add water, lentils, tomatoes, corn, and sweet potato. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 min. Add the tamari, rice and parsley, and heat through before serving.
