(note: oranges are not part of the ingredients list!)
Soak some dried lentils in water for 20-30 minutes. This was about 2 cups I think.
Dice up 3 carrots, 1 large yellow onion and several cloves of garlic.
Such a mess are onion and garlic!
Saute in EVOO in a soup pot until translucent.
Add cumin and low sodium vegetable broth (or water) and bring to a boil. Add barley and simmer 10 minutes. Add lentils and simmer 30 minutes.
Add chopped chard and simmer just until wilted. Add more cumin, garlic powder, salt & pepper to taste.
Serve with a dash of parmesan if desired.
