1 large, sweet onion such as Vidalia, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cups bouillon
1 cup lentils
1 28-ounce can plum tomatoes, undrained
2 teaspoons cajun spice blend (see note)
4 small, firm zucchini, sliced
Cooked barley or other whole grains of your choice(optional)
Combine all ingredients except the zucchini in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer about 30 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Add the zucchini and simmer 5 minutes more. Serve over the cooked whole grain of your choice if desired. Also good chilled!
Note: Cajun spice blends can be found in the spice section of most supermarkets, or you can make your own from my spice blend recipes.
