Green Lentil and Zucchini Soup
I love lentils and always am looking for new ways to have them. With a garden full of zucchinis, this recipe was a no-brainer; one of our favorite staples. It is even good served cold on hot days.
Elbow pasta can be substituted for the ditalini. The larger the pasta you use the longer it needs to simmer.
Use freshly cooked lentils rather than canned.
For vegans, substitute sunflower oil for butter.
Substitute 2 beef bouillon cubes for the 2 tablespoons granules if desired.
If done in a slow cooker, add 30 minutes to simmer time before adding lentils and pasta.
