Everything Under the Moon Soup
This is a great recipe I came up with a few years ago playing around in the kitchen. Isn’t that how all great recipes are made? It’s a very tasty, healthy, thick soup that you can eat by itself or with any meal. I like to serve it with baked chicken or pork chops. I named it everything under the Moon for a reason, as you can add anything to it.
1 white onion
4 celery stalks
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup red lentils
1 can (10oz) diced tomatoes with chilies
1/2 green cabbage (optional)
2 hand fulls spinach (optional)
1 can (10oz) tomato sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp. pepper
1-2 Tbsp. curry (optional)
5 cups water
Cut all the vegetables into chunks.
Place all veggies in a 4-6 Qt. dutch oven.
Measure out 1/2 cup of red lentils, you can use more if you want it wont change the consistency.
Add the lentils, tomatoes with chilies, tomato sauce, seasonings and water.
Now stir it up really well.
Bring it to a boil. Stir a few times while it comes to a boil.
Cover and simmer on low for 45 mins or until tender.
Once its tender its time to blend it. You can use a stand up blender and carefully do it in batches or use a hand stick blender like I do. I love the hand stick blender because you can do it right there in the pot.
Blend until there are no junks. You may add a bit of water if its to thick for you.
It will be nice and thick. Serve hot and enjoy.
Don’t forget you can toss in any veggies you want, the more the better I say. That’s why I call it everything under the moon remember, LOL. Add your favorite seasonings, too. Play with it and see what you come up with. I’d love to hear if you tried this and what you thought of it.
The magickal beautiful powerful Moon Goddess. I love to give thanks to the Moon Goddess as often as I can. Since this soup is named after her I like to say thank you to her when I make it. You can too by simply doing the following:
If you can go outside and sit under the Moon.
She can be any phase. It doesn’t matter if you can see her or not shes still up there.
Light a candle or incense.
Sit and clear your mind for a few mins.
Imagine her silvery white lights coming off of her and surrounding you with her energy.
Tell her what you’re thankful for and and don’t forget to thank her too.

I’m Pagan/Wiccan and have been practicing over 10 years now. I always knew I was different but didn’t figure it out till 2008, that’s when I came out of the broom closet. I’m a Witch and I’m proud of it. When I say different I mean I just didn’t fit in with what others did or believed in. I’m sure you all totally understand that feeling. Now I know though I’m not different, I’m me and there are so many others like me.
I hold rituals at my house with my circle for each Sabbat and we do a lot of witch crafts together. I love to do all types of crafts not just witchy like I make dream catchers, wood burn, make soaps and bath salts. I love to cross stitch and make latch hook rugs. I have a small page on Facebook that I sell my goodies. You can FIND THEM HERE at Pixiewitchcorner.
I love to cook and bake. My mother was a great cook & I picked up her talent. I love to make my own fun recipes and add some magick to them. I mean cooking is magickal right so why not add a little extra to it. I started a Kitchen Witch Group on Facebook over 4 years ago. If your on FB come check it out.
I love to spend my time with my hubby & boys. We love to be out in nature especially the beach & the forest. I belong in the forest, I guess all pixie’s do hee hee. My friends call me Pixie due to my size I’m 5’1 and barely 100 pounds with really long red and silver hair hee hee.
I collect stones like hag stones, labradorite, amethysts, quartz etc… I also collect witch statues, Goddess statues, owls, crows and the Moon. Oh & sea glass I cant forget that. Do tattoos count? If so I have over a 100 of them I’m about 80% covered.
Another hobby is photography. I love taking pictures of nature such as flowers, animals, trees, mountains, the ocean and my favorite of all the Moon.
I love to unwind two ways one is with a great book, usually witchy or paranormal ones catch my attention the most. I do read & research a lot about the human body and diseases due to my families rare health issues. The other is going outside under the stars and Moon. What a great way to end the day looking up at the dark beautiful sky.
That’s pretty much it, you see what you get hee hee. You either love me or hate me. Hopefully you all will love me haha.
