What you need:

4 Cups chicken broth

6 Cups water

2 Cups black beans

2 Cups lentils

2 Cup bok choy

1 Cup carrots

1 Cup golden potatoes

1 Cup bell pepper

2 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 Tbsp. black pepper

2 Tsp. salt

1/2 Cup onion (Optional)

1 Cup chicken breast (Optional)

1 Cup turkey sausage, sliced (Optional)



Directions: (Approximate cook time: 25 minutes; Serving size – 9 servings)

  1. First, chop your carrots, bok choy, potatoes, bell pepper, onions (optional), chicken (optional) and turkey sausage (optional) into small pieces; set aside.

  2. In one large pot, add your chicken stock, 2 cups of water and the spices; in another large pot, fill with the additional 4 cups of water. Place both on the stovetop on medium heat, and bring to a boil.

  3. When both pots are boiling, place your chopped carrots, potatoes, onions, chicken, and turkey sausage into the pot with the chicken stock; add the black beans to the pot that only contains boiling water. Allow both pots to cook down for 5 minutes, and then turn both stovetop ranges down to low heat.

  4. After an additional 10 minutes, take the black beans from the pot and strain them; then add them to the pot with the other ingredients, along with the lentils, bok choy, and bell pepper. Allow ingredients to cook for an additional 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Finally, take your soup off of the heat, and serve immediately.

  6. Eat & enjoy!
