Lentil Soup With Red Yeast Rice

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a basic lentil soup recipe served with red yeast rice. I recently discovered this rice and find it to be very tasty. Its beautiful, rich color makes it delightful to the eye as well! The red yeast rice is the product of yeast grown on rice and it is a dietary staple in some Asian countries. Red yeast rice is claimed to inhibit the formation of cholesterol. I hope you enjoy this recipe. You can coarsley chop the vegetables since they will be put into a blender at the end of the cooking. The rice can cook during the soup preparation.
