 Red Lentil & Potato Chowder
 1 c. red lentils
 3 c. water
 1 onion, diced
 2 cloves garlic, chopped
 1 red potato cut into small cubes
 2 cups sliced yellow squash
 1/2 c nonfat yogurt
 1/2 c skim milk
 1/4 tsp nutmeg
 salt & pepper to taste
 In soup pot, boil first 5 ingredients, then simmer for 30 minutes -
 everything should be very mushy.
 Add 2 c of yellow squash and simmer an additional 10 minutes.
 Put everything (including the rest of the ingredients) in a blender
 and blend until smooth.
 Gently reheat over low heat back in saucepan...Serve!  (Serves 4 as a
 main course)
 This was really out of this world!  Serve with a hearty bread on a
 cold day!
 By the way, I almost didn't add the yogurt and milk because it tasted
 great beforehand (and I might not add them next time) so anyone
 avoiding dairy need not avoid this recipe, you just might want to thin
 the soup with a little water.
