I made this soup this evening after the game and we LOVE IT!
1 cup brown rice
1 cup dried lentils
1 cup dried split peas
1 cup pasta (I use gluten free pasta.)
20 cups chicken broth (or vegetable)
1 smoked turkey wing (or other smoked meat)
2 cloves of garlic minced
Black pepper, red pepper flakes
Put everything in the pot, bring to boil. Simmer for 20 minutes. TASTE. Add salt according to taste. (You should never add salt before this when using smoked meat because you don't know how much salt has been used in the smoked meat.) Simmer for 20 more minutes stirring occasionally. Dice the meat off the bone and put everything back in the pot.
The beauty of this recipe is that it is really easy to make smaller or larger pots of it. This made a big pot so, if you'd like to make it for one or two people with a bit left over, just do simple arithmetic and you're good.
The math is simple, 1 part (same amount) of 4 dried goods then multiply the total amount of dried goods by 5 to get how much broth you'll need.
So...if you only use 1/4 cup of each ingredient that equals 1 cup of dried goods so you'll need 5 cups of broth.
You can make it vegetarian by using vegetable broth and not using the smoked turkey and it doesn't have to be gluten free if you don't need it to be.
