Curried Lentil Soup...


I found this recipe over at Nourished Kitchen blog, and knew right away it would be a perfect spring soup. Not heavy like the soups of winter...chili, beef stew, etc., but soup that would put a bounce in your step, a twinkle in your eyes!

I followed the directions almost exactly, except I had no fenugreek seeds.
As a matter of fact I don't think I have ever had fenugreek seeds in my pantry!
Never mind the fenugreek seeds....I don't even think I know anyone who has them that I could have borrowed from....
And....
Don't be afraid of the curry in this soup. It is not overpowering like some curries...just a nice, mildly spicy soup...perfect for the kind of weather we SHOULD be having!
We all loved it!

Speaking of the weather...
I think we skipped summer altogether and went right back into winter....
10 days ago it was 85 and I was sunning on the back deck.
One week later it was in the 20's and snowing like January!

Spring...come back to us.
We hardly knew ya....

In His grace,
Cindy

Pin It!

I have fenugreek seeds in my pantry but it's probably a tad too far for you to pop over and grab some! Up to now I have only sprouted them and added them to breads and salads. Coming into soup season here so will definitely give this recipe a go!

Oh, Cindy, I had the seeds! Just kidding. ;-)

Looks yummy. I have been organizing like crazy again, my pantry, under the sink, bathroom drawers, labels on everything that was not moving. Though I am out of ink! ugh, four labels to go. Tomorrow, the downstairs 'pantry', Lord willing.

The soup sounds good, I love curry. Its wet and cold here too...It seem like thae past few years we go from winter right into summer which is short and then fall which is long then back to winter. We have three seasons instead of four.

Hows things with your daughter?
Your grandson?

Blessings sister,

Susan
