Melanie and Heidi's Red Lentil Soup

8 c. water
1 c. red lentils
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
2 large onions, chopped finely
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons white rice
1 teaspoon salt

Saute onions in oil, and add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for about 1 hour until lentils and rice are completely cooked.

Joelle's variations: 
1. Cook in crockpot on high for 4 or 5 hours.
2. For barley soup: Instead of 1 c. red lentils, do 1/2 c. red lentils and 1/2 c. uncooked barley. Add 1 T. chicken style seasoning, 2 sticks celery, chopped finely, 1 onion, and only 1 t. cumin. Leave rice out. 
4. 2 celery
