12 cups water
1/2 cup barley
2 1/4 cups lentil (2 pounds)
5 small white potatos, chopped (I did them in 8ths)
2-3 stalks bok choy, chopped (can substitute celery)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp curry
1 bay leaf
Rinse lentils clean, rinse barley clean.
Add to pot with 12 cups of water, bring to boil on high heat.
Add potatoes, boil at medium heat for 10-15 minutes
Add bok choy, bay leaf, salt, garlic, and curry.
Add MSG or black pepper to taste. Simmer until done. Should take 45-60 minutes total cooking time. Remove bay leaf before some poor fool tries to eat it.
This is a heavily modified recipe that I decided on when I got back from the grocery store, and found out that all the vegetables I thought I didn't need to buy (onions, carrots, cabbage) had spoiled in the crisper. ;_; Doh. My family went with a bit of MSG sprinkled into the soup, no pepper. This came out well, but might need some tweaking.
