Lentil Soup

I had about three cups of lentils leftover from the casserole, so I turned them into soup. This is very lazy soup-I hesitate to call it cooking.

You Will Need:

3 cups cooked lentils (about-use what you have)

2 bay leaves

2 tablespoons dried, minced onion

1 teaspoon dried, minced garlic

1 large tin crushed tomatoes w/juice

2-3 beef soup cubes

4 carrots, finely diced

1 frozen block of spinach

1 tablespoon cumin

salt and pepper as desired

about 6 cups of water

Toss it all in a pot, bring to a boil. Skim excess foam and reduce to simmer. Cook until carrots are tender. Done. Go back to bedroom and re-wind video for child for the fifteenth time. Take child's temperature. Bring him saltines. Tuck him back in. Repeat as needed.
