I’m at my sisters right now, enjoying a lazy Friday night and loving it. The fire is on, her cat is trying to attack me here on the couch and I’ve got a glass of wine in hand (yes, I know, this seems like it’s becoming a common theme lately. I’m enjoying it!). Chrissy is one of the best cooks I know!!! And the best thing is, is that she LOVES to cook for people!! AND, for all of the champion men out there, she’s single ;)
You have to try this soup that she made which is suuuuper easy. She just came back from Egypt and has tons of great stories to share, but most importantly she has more recipes!!! Here’s the recipe for this awesome soup (with approximate measurements. She’s one of those cooks, the kind that I WISH I was! – one day I guess! :)
6 cups of chicken broth
1.5 cups of red lentils
1 tsp+ of cumin
1 tomato, diced
big handful of mint leaves, chopped
5 cloves of garlic minced
1 lemon cut into wedges
1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, add garlic and roast until golden brown – not burned!!
2. Add chicken broth, bring to a boil then add red lentils and tomatoes
3. Simmer over medium heat until the lentils are almost falling apart, add mint and cook for another few minutes
4. Put into bowls and squeeze fresh lemon over!
DONE!! Thanks Chrissy!! That is the ONLY reason why I come to visit, is because you feed me!!! HAHA. Kidding. Sort of.
Have a great Friday night!!! Don’t be surprised if you see Tina Turner out in Vancouver tomorrow night!! You didn’t know she was in town? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see some pictures to be posted soon :)
Smile with your heart!
