Hi, here is my son's favorite soup of all times. It's very inexpensive and super healthy!
Lentil Beef or Turkey Soup
1 T. vegetable oil
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey (about $4.00)
1 lb. bag lentils (about $1.00)
4 c. water ($0)
3 beef bouillon cubes ($.75)
1 28oz can pureed or crushed tomatoes (about $1.00)
1 c. chopped onion ($.50)
1 1/2 - 2 c. chopped carrot ($.50)
Salt/pepper/red pepper flakes to taste
Total: $7.75 (I did not count the oil and spices)
Brown ground beef/turkey and drain. Put everything else in pot, bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 1 - 1 1/2 hours. Add water if it is too thick. Enjoy
It tastes even better the next day.
