Curried Red Lentil Soup

Did you guys notice my blog is acting funny and I have no idea why?!
Well, besides, cleaning up the snow on the driveways, there is not much we can do this weekend..So make a hot soup, sit back and relax!

1 cup Red Lentils, soaked for 15 min
6-8 cups water/Veg stock
1 large onion ,chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small tomato, chopped
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 1/2 tsp curry powder (I used Fresh Market curry powder)
2 tsp Cumin-Coriander Powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 red potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup Mixed Veggies (Optional)
I also added Spinach
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

  • Saute Onion, garlic, potatoes and tomatoes
  • Stir in the spices-Curry Powder, Cumin-Coriander and turmeric
  • Add tomato sauce
  • Cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the thawed veggies and cook for 8-10 min
  • Pour water and bring to a boil once
  • Add lentils and cook for about 40 min until the lentils are soft, mushy and cooked through
  • Garnish with coriander and with a dollop of yogurt
This goes to MLLA-18 guest hosted by Srivalli and an event started by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook.

You are absolutely right about the snow, i don't like snow at all too much work. Lentil soup seems the perfect food this weather. Is your blog width reduced? Is that what you are talking about. Rest of them seem to be fine.
