I want to eat this every day.
Into the pot goes:
- one litre of chicken stock
- one can of crushed tomatoes
- one + 1/2 diced onions
-a couple of stalks of celery, diced
-2 carrots, peeled and minced
-some combination of red lentils and green split peas equalling about 1 and 1/2 cups
-one can of black beans, drained and rinsed
-a few handfuls of ham, cubed
-1 or 2 chili peppers, minced
Simmer on the stove until the veggies and lentils are soft. Imitate Bill Murray in What About Bob? while you eat it.
