Soup Lentil Sprouts

lentilsprout
If dry lentils is what you have on hand, soak the lentils overnight through several changes of water to rid them of phytic acid. This will make them easier to digest and less likely to produce gas. Sprouting lessens both phosphorus and phytic acid.

Ingredients
4 oz lentil sprouts or a ½ cup
1 small onion chopped finely
3 cloves garlic press
1 carrot chopped into cubes
bay leaf
fresh thyme or crush dry between your fingers.
fresh parsley 3 Tbsp
roasted cumin seeds 1 tsp
roasted mustard seeds ½ tsp
water to cover 2 inches ~ 6 C.
round slice fresh turmeric
cinnamon swizzle stick

Preparation
Use a stainless steel pressure cooker, sauté the onion, garlic, 2 minutes, then add carrot, bay leaf, thyme, parsley, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric, cinnamon stick, until everything becomes fragrant. Add water. Set the pressure cooker. Once the steam begins to hiss, time it for about 10 minutes. Then shut it off and allow it naturally cool, removing the lock. Taste the soup for seasoning. If cooking on the stove top, cook about 20-30 minutes. Part of the soup can be added to a blender to thicken it as a base for the rest of the soup. Once it is cooked, remove the cinnamon stick and the turmeric. Taste for seasoning. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the soup to bring the flavors together. In a pinch while traveling I have used one Roastaroma tea bag in place of the spices for this soup. This soup can be served on its own, over brown rice, wild rice, or eaten as it is with a slice of crusty spelt bread. Sprouting lentils lowers their phosphorus content; their phytic acid content; and aides in making them much more digestible.

Soup Lentil Minestrone No Tomatoes

lentil-minestore-soup-odd-500x334
Caution with kale, it is high in oxalates. A quick dip in boiling water for a few seconds will decrease the oxalates. Toss the oxalate containing water.
Ingredients
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra virgin olive oil to finish off
2 cups finely chopped onion
¼ cup chopped parsley
4 garlic cloves, chopped
3 carrots, diced
1 cup diced celery or celery root/celeriac
1 cup French green lentils, sorted and rinsed
Aromatics: 2 bay leaves, 8 parsley branches, 6 thyme sprigs
9 cups water or Vegetable Stock
3 button mushrooms
Himalayan Salt and freshly milled pepper
1 bunch greens—mustard, broccoli rabe, chard

Preparation
Heat the oil in a wide soup pot with the onion. Sauté over high heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add the parsley, celery, garlic, vegetables, cook 3 minutes more. Add the lentils, aromatics, and water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes. Taste for salt and season with pepper. If it needs more depth, add a few chopped mushrooms. The soup may seem bland at this point, but the flavors will come together when the soup is finished. Remove the aromatics.

Boil the greens in salted water until they’re tender and still bright green, then chop coarsely. Just before serving, add the greens to the soup and heat through. Serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil drizzled into each bowl, a generous grind of pepper, and top with spelt bread crumbs.

4 oz blonde lentils soaked
1 bay leaf
fresh thyme
few sprigs of parsley
Spike seasoning
1 Lemon juiced
1/4 C chopped onion
1 diced carrot
¾ pound asparagus cut ½” pieces

Preparation:

To diminish phytic acid and to aide in digestibility, soak the lentils overnight in 4 cups of water. In the morning, drain the lentils; rinse under the faucet. Repeat this procedure for two more days. On the third day cook the lentils in fresh water with the herbs, sautéed onion, diced carrot. After bringing to a boil, simmer the mixture covered for an hour on low.  Add chopped asparagus to the soup, reserving the tips for later. Once the vegetables are cooked thoroughly, put all in a food processor. Heat for about 10 minutes, adding the reserved asparagus tips. Serve with a dollop of almond dill cheese or coconut cream and a slice of crusty grilled spelt bread.
