What’s the connection between feng shui & food you ask? As you know, the chi in your surroundings and in the food you eat either nourish or deplete you. How you prepare your meals adds to the vibrancy of the food you eat and serve to others. For those who know me well, know I love to cook. My love of cooking adds joy to the food I eat. And that’s a good thing and good things are good feng shui!
1 cup dried red lentils
5 cups hearty veggie broth or organic chicken broth
1 onion chopped
1 sweet red pepper chopped
2 large carrots peeled & chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 t cumin
salt & pepper to taste
Sauté onion, pepper, carrots & celery in olive oil until onions are translucent. Add cumin, red lentils & broth and simmer about 30 – 45 minutes. When lentils are soft the soup is ready. I like to use a hand held puree and pulse a couple of times so the soup is creamy, yet still has some lumps.
