 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8      cups          Water
      1/3  cup           Lentils
      1/3  cup           Lima Beans
      1/3  cup           Wild rice
    1      large         Leek
      1/4  cup           Tomato sauce or Ketchup
    4      dashes        Hot sauce or more
    4      dashes        Fish sauce
    4      dashes        Soy sauce
    2                    Chicken bouillon cubes
 
 This recipe would be vegan if the fish sauce and bouillon cubes are
 eliminated and vegetable bouillon and extra soy used in their place.
 I am sure it would taste even better with the addition of a good stewing
 chicken, but it was created from the materials on hand one weekend. The
 lentils are long cooked until they disintegrate to form a meaty looking and
 tasting stock, an effect that is enhanced  by the tomato.
 
  Bring the water to a boil in a soup pot and add lentils; simmer covered 1/2
 hr or more. Add the lima beans and cook another 1/2 hour.
 Add the rice and cook another 20 min. Add the chopped green portions of a
 large or 2 medium well washed leek[s] [They are sandy and there is always
 sand trapped in the outer leaves] and simmer 10 min. Add the sliced white
 portion of the leek and the remaining ingredients.
 Simmer 15 min and serve.
