This is just the thing to cook when home sick with a cold. It took about 10 minutes to prepare and is comforting and nutritious.
No recipe, I just threw the following ingredients in and left them to bubble away:
Chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
Soup mix (dried lentils and beans)
plus enough water to just cover the vegetables.
After about 4 hours on high I roughly mashed it with a potato masher, and served with a dollop of sour cream. Yum.
If you have more time and energy, it's much tastier to briefly cook the vegies in olive oil first, or even better is to roast them.
