kumera and lentil soup

this is one of the easiest soups i know...almost as easy as opening up a can of cambell's soup; it's just fresher tasting, that's all.

1 kilogram kumera, cubed
3/4 cup red lentils, rinsed
stock to cover
salt and pepper to taste

pop everything into a pot, bring it to the boil and simmer until the kumera is tender. blend until smooth (or however you like it) and serve.

wasn't that the easiest? i'm not a big lentil person, but the addition of lentils with this really works well, so much so that if it is omitted, the soup just doesn't taste as good.

thank you for dropping by, denise. this is such a simple soup that it's easily overlooked. i made it today, and once it was done, i put in some fresh chicken and let it poach until just done, fished it out and chopped it up and popped it back in. you can have it plain or with add's just easy and good. i hope you enjoy it as much as i do.
