Savory Lentil Soup

Winter and soup make a wonderful combination!  There's nothing nicer than a hot cup of soup for lunch or supper when the weather is cold outside.  I've been in soup mode for awhile, and have enjoyed making a variety of soups for the family to enjoy.  Here's what cooking in my kitchen right now. . .

Savory Lentil Soup

1 cup lentils, dry
3 - 4 cups water
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme
2 bay leaves
dash of salt
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp. oil 
1/2 cup brown rice, uncooked

Simmer on medium heat until lentils and rice is tender.  Add more water if desired.  Adjust seasonings to your liking.  When done stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon juice.

Spoon into large mugs or bowls.  Garnish with a sprig of parsley.  Enjoy!
