By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Similar recipes include Cod with Crushed Potatoes and Anchovy-Olive Oil Emulsion, Beets & Crushed Avocado With Grapefruit, and Crushed Potato And Watercress Cakes.

Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Antipasti. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The NV Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards Cat Fizz Bottle of Wine with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 11 dollars per bottle.

Instructions

In an enamel 5 quart dutch oven (or large soup pot) drizzle olive oil and heat. Add the chopped garlic and fry until it browns and becomes very fragment. Add the chopped onion and carrots- saute until tender.

Add 6 cups of broth and red lentils. Stir, put on lid, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender.

Add fresh lemon juice, 2 additional cups of broth and 1/2 cup of rice. Simmer until the rice is tender. The time will vary based on the variety of rice.

Feel free to the remaining liquid, more if necessary, until the soup is the consistency desired.

I added two additional cups of liquid after the soup was done cooking so it was too thick. In an effort to reduce sodium I purchase the lowest sodium chicken broth and use about two cups of water. If the soup seems to need additional flavor or salt I add chicken bouillon to taste.

Serve with chopped cilantro and sumac.
