With budgetary concerns, stay at home recommendations and other pandemic-related issues, it’s the perfect year to shift from traditional retail gifts to homemade edible items for loved ones. Check out this simple, delicious dry mix recipe for Lentil Brown Rice Soup:

Lentil Brown Rice Soup

Yield: 6 servings

If presenting the soup mix as a gift, layer dry ingredients in a Mason jar and print recipe to attach to the jar.

1 cup green or brown lentils
½ cup uncooked brown rice
½ cup green split peas
1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1 Tbsp garlic powder
½ tsp ground black pepper
2 large vegetable bouillon cubes (1 cube should be equivalent to 1 Tbsp of granulated bouillon)
8 cups water

Optional:
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, no salt added

Optional: Sauté onion in oil in a large stock pot over high heat for 3 minutes. Add can of diced tomatoes.

Add dry soup ingredients and 8 cups of water to the same large stock pot (unless starting with this step). Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat and simmer for 40 minutes, covered with a lid. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Serve with crusty bread and parmesan cheese, if desired.

Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 4 months.
