Vegan Lentil Chili With Roasted Red Peppers

I had my writing friend Sherry Meneley over for lunch recently and served her Lentil Chili. Sherry loved it! Filled us up with some good food on a cold winter day. I think you'll also love this easy soup and make it one of your favorites.

This delicious soup comes from Kalyn's Kitchen where I find lots of yummy soups and salads. Kalyn has a real gift for finding and putting together healthy and delicious soups and salads. I often find myself making meals from her blog.

This recipe is vegan and offers a refreshing twist for chili. No time like winter to serve this hearty soup. All the ingredients were to my liking and diet needs. I couldn't find the red lentils, but that didn't make too much difference except the red lentils soften sooner than the brown making the soup thicker.

Give yourself some time to make this recipe. It's easy to put together, but the lentils require an hour to cook.

Kidnapped Four-Year-Old

Four-year-old kidnapped by knights from Carrot Castle. The Prisoner of Carrot Castle continues to captivate children all over the world with its engaging story, fun interactions, vibrant illustrations and subliminal message.

As you know, dear reader, I have a passion for healthy eating and teaching others how to be healthy. Being a children’s writer and wishing to contribute to the fight against childhood obesity, I wrote The Prisoner of Carrot Castle. Turning it into an iPad app brings the book to life, making its subliminal message more appealing to kids.

Every child who reads and plays with the new iPad app, The Prisoner of Carrot Castle, will be saying "Great Zooks, what an awesome story!"
