**** The soup in this picture is made without corn, because I don't have corn on that day, and my son also don't like corn. So I just make it with what ever I had in the refrigerator, but the other time I made with added the corn in the soup, and it taste so good, but I did not take a picture****

2 fresh sweet corns (sliced)

2 organic fresh carrots

1 fresh loofah squash

1 table spoon sea salt


Purify water or filter water (do not use too much water, but just use it enough to cover everything, the soup will have more juice coming from the vegetables, like corn, celery, and squash)

Cilantro for toping

½ red onion (optional)
 A little bit of fresh young ginger (optional)

1 table spoon of black pepper if you like to bring the taste more stand out, or more tasty.


How to make:


1. Wash and rinse split lentil a few times, then add water to the split lentil pot, and bring to boil on medium-high heat for about 5-7 minutes.
