When Ya Gotta Have Something Brown....

Looks.....delightful, doesn't it?
Actually, it was!  It's called Lentil Soup with Ground Beef and Brown Rice. I don't know what possessed me to try this soup, because the picture on this lady's blog didn't look much better.  I am sooo glad I did, though because not only is it amazingly delicious, but it's under 200 calories per cup, and one cup fills me up.  And that rhymes.
I didn't realize we didn't have carrots, so I omited them from this recipe.  I did use the balsamic vinegar, but it didn't need salt.  We were also out of beef broth (Way to plan ahead, Karen.)  so I used vegetable broth.  I did end up adding more broth than they called for. 
I know it looks like a pile of brown food.  And it is.  But it's so good, and so I think you should try it.  :)  And then I dare you to take a picture where it looks appetizing.  I double-dog dare you.
