Hearty Vegie 10 bean soup

This is the first recipe post on my running blog,  this soup has been quite a success in various races I have volunteered. (Ruth Anderson 50k/50M,100k) and Run Des Vous 100M. This was initially introduced by my friend Arun Simha, I have modified little to my taste.

  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • lime juice
Soak 10 bean soup mix overnight, pressure cook lentils. 

In a large pot  heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened for 5 minutes.
