The color is purple, and the grain is rice.
Tonight we made a lentil soup recipe courtesy of my dear friend Kristin, and tweaked it via suggestions of my dear friend Emma.
1 cup of rinsed red lentils in a pot with
1/4 cup brown or green rice
4 cups distilled water
1 onion, peeled and cut up into small chunks
into a pot and bring to a boil
turn down to a simmer, and simmer for 30 min.
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon rosemary (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
juice of one lemon
Since Monday's color is purple, we added our natural food coloring from Whole Foods, made from purple carrot extract. We made Jiffy (don't judge me!) blueberry muffins and put food coloring in those as well, and served it in purple bowls. We had purple candles and amethyst on the table and drank wine! (The girls had water in purple cups ;))
