$30 Bucks a Week was a feature on NY12’s Brooklyn cable news yesterday! We were interviewed by the extremely nice Kena Vernon at our local supermarket and then took her back to our apartment to make some lentil and sweet potato soup. The segment is brief, but we were excited that our message of shopping for fresh food and staying away from prepackaged stuff came through.
For the soup, we sauteed chopped onions and sweet potatoes in olive oil and added 1 cup of homemade broth concentrate, 2 cups of water, a cup of lentils and salt, pepper and fresh thyme. We let the whole thing simmer until the lentils were cooked through and it was the perfect lunch to accompany today’s rainy day.
