Eat In. Bob's Red Mill soup mix.

Now that it's getting cool and cloudy it's time for some food that sticks to your bones. Foods with the words "refreshing," "light," "citrus-y" or anything like it just don't sound as good as some hearty stew.

A recent find at Whole Foods Market, this is one of Bob's Red Mill products. Bob also makes some tasty and funky flours if you're into baking at all. Their oat flour is great for making scones.

This Vegi Soup Mix is perfection in a bag. It has an almost-unbelievable amount of protein and fiber (21 grams protein; 19 grams dry), it's tasty, easy, filling, low calorie, and cheap.

For $4, you can make at least four batches of the stew. One serving of Bob's veggie soup can feed two people, and still have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Just add one cup of the packet of dry lentil, barley and alphabet pasta mix to four parts water and add whatever raw vegetables you want. I used vegetable broth, carrots, celery, and a coursely chopped onion, but tomatoes and potatoes would be very good in this stew, too.

It was just the thing for a muggy day indoors.
