Ingredients:

1 cup raw lentils (sprouted) – follow instructions for sprouting
4 large carrots, thinly sliced
4 stalks celery, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 to 5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 14-ounce can organic Italian tomatoes
1/4 tsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. coriander seeds
1/2 tsp. Celtic salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 strips seaweed kombu
(found at health food stores)
1 tbsp. miso
8 cups or more of water or vegetable broth

Method:

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all the ingredients and cook for 30 minutes, or until soft. 

Note: The addition of the seaweed kombu will aid in the digestion of the lentils.
Lentils are a good source of B vitamins as well as essential minerals, including iron. If you’re not a frequent meat eater, lentils can provide a delicious heart-healthy alternative
to animal sources of protein and allow a little diversion from a meat-based diet. Lentils
are helpful for weight loss since their high protein and fiber content promote a feeling of
satiety.
