Chicken & Lentil Soup

Just a quick soup for after a visit to the dentist. I tossed it together with what I had on hand

1 onion
2 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 tsp chili flakes
¾ cups of Black Beluga Lentils
4 cup water
1 litre chicken stock
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tbsp oil
½ tsp garlic powder
250 g raw shrimp
pepper
salt

1. add the lentils and water to a pot. Bring to a boil  and let simmer for 30 minutes

2. chop the onion, carrot, celery and chili flakes. Add to the soup pot with the oil and cook until the vegetable are soft.

3. Add the chicken stock, garlic, poultry seasoning and the cooked lentils and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat and add the shrimp. Let stand for 5 minutes and serve

It does go well with some crackers.
