This Lentil Dhal Soup is a real crowd pleaser.  I can't think of a person that I've served this to that hasn't asked me for the recipe. It's rich, hearty, healthy, and delicious!  The aroma will be irresistible so don't be surprised when the neighbors drop by "unexpectedly" to see what's cooking!

 

Lentil Dhal Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 lb canned, chopped tomatoes (I use Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 13.5 fl oz can coconut milk
  • ½ bag frozen peas, spinach, or kale
  • chopped cilantro and lemon slices for optional garnish

Instructions:

  1. Saute the onions, garlic and spices in water for a bit to mix the flavors
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and cook for about a half an hour or so until the lentils are soft. (NOTE: red lentils cook *much* faster than brown lentils)
