Anonymous asked: Just a few questions as that receipe sounds great. So, the lentils will be cooked enough after 45 minutes in the broth? Also, I'm gathering after you cook the white beans for an hour, you then add them to the lentil mixture. Why do you remove the seeds on the tomatoes? I have always read that seeds in most things are the ultimate vitamin source. Your picture makes it look fantastic as I'm sure it is. Thank you,
The lentils cook for an hour. That is the timing of this recipe. After 45 minutes I add the tomatoes, and I take the seeds out just for my own personal preference. You can leave them in, absolutely. And yes, you add the beans to the soup. I usually make my beans the day before. I also make a big batch, that I divide up and make freezer packages, so I always have them on hand. I hope you enjoy the soup.
