Lentil Soup
This was really good. I used 8 cups organic vegetable stock and 1 1/2-2 cups water as the lentils absorb much of the liquid during cooking. If you use the stock you don't need to add the salt, and only 1 can of tomatoes is sufficient. Also I added about 6 cloves of garlic and sauteed vegggies in about 3/4 Tbsp coconut oil instead of olive. After 45 mins I added chopped kale instead of spinach and fresh cut corn off the cob-2 ears for a flavor and texture addition. Do use the balsamic vinegar as others suggested and I topped mine with nutritional yeast instead of cheese for a healthy and delicious soup!

Curried Cumin Potatoes
After tasting these during cooking process, I decided they definitely needed some garlic powder or hing. I added about 1 tsp of garlic powder, and as others have noted, about 1/3 c unsweetened coconut milk so they weren't as dry. They turned out wonderful!
