The LiberalOasis Radio Show: Lentil Soup Edition

The LiberalOasis Radio Show was broadcast Saturday at 12 noon on WHMP in Western MA. (And will be re-broadcast at 8 PM on Tuesday.) This week featured Jennifer Nix on the need to accept what is politically possible on health care, Sarah Buttenwieser on how a community can come together when faced with tragedy and terror, "Momtroversies" essayist Traci Olsen on how parents should not act like their parents and learn to love "Twilight" and Tina McElmoyl on how our relationship with food shifted in 2009.

For those interested in Tina's lentil soup recipe, here it is:

1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 onion finely chopped
2 cups of dried lentils
2 cloves of garlic chopped and crushed
1 cup whole, peeled tomatoes (preferrably those tomatoes you canned last summer at the peak of their tastiness)
1 cup of tomato juice
6 cups of your favorite vegetable stock

Dump it all in a pot and, after it comes to a boil, simmer it , partially covered for 45 minutes. Before serving, I like to mash about 1/2 of the lentils with a potato masher, for texture.

You can download the podcast at these links: (iTunes / XML feed / MP3).
