Meatless Monday: Curried Lentil Soup

As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm a big fan of soups - most anytime, but especially during the fall. Plenty of soups are hearty and can help warm you right up, but on those particularly blustery, chill-you-to-the-bone types of days, nothing hits the spot better than a soup with an extra punch in the heat department - spicy heat, that is. This next soup fits that bill.

Curried Lentil Soup

Recipe modifications I would recommend:
  • Use 6 cups of water (or, better yet, vegetable stock) instead of 7 cups.
  • Use twice as much curry (and this is a suggestion from someone who tends to be a big wimp when it comes to eating spicy foods).
  • Use a can of roasted diced tomatoes; it adds a nice smokey flavor that compliments the curry. BUT only use half as much as the recipe calls for.

Got any favorite vegetarian recipes?? Please share!
