This is just a basic red lentil soup that can be an addition to a meal. I like to soak and sprout lentils but feel free to omit this part. The soaking/sprouting part took about 3 days! Just prepare however you prepare your lentils. Sorry I didn't get a picture of this.
1 cup red lentils, soaked and sprouted
A few slices of bacon(fried) and cut into pieces
In a pot, add the lentils then water just enough to cover it. Bring to a boil. Add the spices except for sea salt. Boil for a few minutes then cover simmer til lentils are cooked. Add the salt and bacon pieces after the lentils are cooked.
