Perfect Sunday!

What a Sunday!  I finally finished the grad class that I had been putting off FOREVER and decided to celebrate by spending the rest of my Sunday eating an awesome dinner and watching a movie.

Arabian Lentil and Rice Soup with Cheesy Bread

1 medium onion
6 cloves garlic
black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 T. cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
1 cup dried lentils
1/2 cup brown rice
6 cups of veggie brother (I used 4 c. broth and 2 c. water)
1/4 cup lemon juice

Preheat pot on the stove.  Pour in 2 T. EVOO and 1 medium chopped onion.
When the onion is translucent, add in garlic, pepper, and salt.  Then add the rest of the spices.
Add carrots, lentils, rice, and broth.  Cover the pot and bring to a boil.  Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 40 min or so.  Add 1/4 cup lemon juice and serve :)  This was pretty lemony so if you don't like that then add less lemon juice.

The bread was to die for but I'd make a 1/2 batch next time for 1 loaf of bread.  You also have to make sure you serve it with a VERY healthy dinner b/c it is not so much healthy itself!


Back to work tomorrow... this has been an awesome winter break :)
