Poor John has a sore throat! He never really gets sick and he took SUCH good care of me when I was sick, so I wanted to make him some yummy soup. He requested lentil rice soup.
The soup is 3/4 cup dried lentils, 1/2 cup brown rice, 3 sliced cloves of garlic, and lots of kosher salt, oregano, and parsley. I put it all together with maybe 4 cups of homemade chicken broth and 1 cup of water and let it boil and boil. Eventually it looked like this:
John said it was SO good. His eyes actually POPPED when he tasted it, so I was proud. I hope he gets better!
