I have celery I want to use in a soup to get rid of and I was hoping to use a meatless recipe. I also have fresh onions, potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes on hand. I have tons of canned beans and frozen and canned veggies. Also have tomato puree & paste, stewed and diced tomatoes, and cream of mushroom, chicken, or brocolli. I have rice and tons of noodles.

TIA!

How about a soup recipe on the stove?

I made this soup a couple of weeks ago and it was a big hit. It seems like you could take the things you have on hand and modify the recipe to suit.

There are a lot of really great recipes in that blog, btw. Good luck!

I made this the other day on the stove. You could put it in a crockpot, though, I just wouldn't add the tomatoes, or any salt, until later because they'll slow down the lentil cooking time. You could add more celery to use up what you have!

Lentil Bean Stew

2 onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 t fresh ginger, grated (or use paste)
6 cups water
1 c lentils (any color, I mix it a few together)
1 (15 oz or so) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 (15 oz or so) can kidney beans
2 (15 oz or so) can diced tomatoes
1/2 c carrots, cut into thin rounds
1/2 c celery, thinly sliced into half rounds
1-2 t chili powder
1.5 t cardamom
1 t garam masala
1 t cumin
(optional: ground beef, browned, or turkey sausage, sliced)
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion, garlic, and ginger in some oil. (Saute any optional meat with it.) Rinse the lentils. Dump everything into a soup pot on the stove top. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn down to a low heat until lentils and beans are soft. This is a soup that can sit on the back of the stove simmering through the day for easy scoops out of it for lunch and supper.

You're in MN, too!

I also have a chili recipe that is really good on these cold, rainy days and would use up some of the beans you have.
