Purify Yourself

soup, purify, health, Kashi


I used to run many years ago but my lower back told me to stop.
I loved eating food that was good for me as long as I could make it myself.
This is my own version of a ‘runner’s soup’.
It’s high in every single thing that’s good for you.
The best part?
It tastes good.
Serve with a nice slice or two of multi-grain bread and you are golden.

Dad’s Purifying Soup

You will need:

2/3 cup of lentils
1 cup Kashi (7 grain)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium sweet onion, diced
3-4 cups chicken stock
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp celery salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
pinch of thyme
1 tsp fennel seed
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup EVOO

Wash lentils and Kashi under cold running water for 3-4 minutes and drain.
Heat soup pot and saute garlic and onions in EVOO until golden.
Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and then simmer on low for 1.5 hours.
This soup is not only for runners.
It’s a healthy meal for anyone that needs something nutritional and easy to make.

    What is the Kashi? I’ve had Kashi cereals, Kashi crackers, etc. but what do you use in the soup?

    Use the 7 grain pilaf mix, Denise.
