I could almost taste this when you talked about wanting to “guzzle the broth.” The broth makes a soup for me! Business proposal: you charge /hr for us to come sit in your kitchen and taste test fo you all day. I’d happily donate to sit in your kitchen and just SMELL this magic. You could cash in and get some vegan approval the extends beyond Eric. I’m super excited about this soup recipe, looks perfect for the cooler weather. The rule, however, is that we must change the recipes somehow, eg) making it vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, nut-free, or just taking the main ingredient and using it as inspiration for something completely new.
In the meantime we will do our best to deliver the best possible gaming experience by further improving our website. Also, my kids aren’t big on canned tomatoes (I think it’s the texture), so I pureed them this time and it got an even better reception the second time. Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful recipes and making it possible to eat healthy and delicious food. It actually reminds me of kale Portuguese soup, which usually has chourico or linguica (types of Portuguese sausage that are extremely popular where I live) to get that smoky flavor.Discovering your site was one of the best things about being a vegan. The smoked paprika gives it that “sausage” taste but with no meat.Perfect amount of spice and super easy to throw together. I also added some red potatoes, and served it up with some homemade crusty bread. a sprinkle of cilantro probably would be great as well. When my husband tried this soup he said “Will you be able to make this again, exactly like this?? The best compliment was from my 6 year old, a confirmed soup hater, who said it was the most delicious food he ever tasted. I had to do some subs as for some reason there seems to be a lentil crisis in my ‘hood. My boyfriend said it’s in his top 5 favorite soups now. Reply I scrolled through your recipes and found this! I bring it work for lunch every day – it never gets old! I made it last night for dinner and will be making it many more times – it’s just perfect.This recipe will definitely be on my “repeat list”. Reply I made this soup last week and it was delicious! angela – i just discovered ohsheglows last week, and have made four of your recipes, all of which have been stellar! Reply I made this for Christmas dinner, and it was AMAZING. I used a cup of millet instead (donated by my bird, Timmy) (begrudgingly) and I also used 4 wee potatoes as I am Irish and I was feeling cliche. In fact, I’m shoveling food in my gob as I type this. I added a few pinches of ground ginger after reading another recipe. I’m sure the smokey version would have added the bit of depth I was looking for. I used some leeks I had in the fridge instead of onion, and threw in a can of chickpeas because I only had a half cup of red lentils. I used fire-roasted tomatoes, because that’s what I had on hand. Reply I wanted to tell you that I have made this soup several times now and it has become my family’s favorite soup of all time.I also garnished it with fresh avocado to cut some of the heat…this is officially in my recipe box!!Reply I just made this soup and I had to share how DELICIOUS it is!!!!!! I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now, just wanted to say it’s awesome! funny story: My sisters and I are having this challenge amongst ourselves to cook as many recipes out of the Joy of Cooking as we can.:) Thanks for the great recipe — I’ll be eating this for lunch at work all week. I am usually a total failure at replicating soup recipes, but this tasted wonderful and was so easy. This recipe is a definite crowd-pleaser for vegans and non-vegans alike (neither of us are vegans and we both loved it). Thanks for the fantastic recipe Angela :) Reply You posted this the exact day I was planning on making lentil soup. You wrapped all this up in a tidy smoked package of goodness right in the typed words of this post! Reply Hi Angela, I have been passing on your website to friends and family after trying a few of your recipes! I just savoured the last of it today and will make more tonight. This soup looks terrific and I can’t wait to see all your other soups in your cookbook!The lime added just a touch of acidity which made this dish the perfect combination of savory and delicious. Unfortunately, due to allergy issues, do you think I could substitute brown rice for the lentils? I had to use what was on hand, so I replaced some of the spices with turmeric and chili flakes, and it was lovely.Thanks for this quick and easy recipe, and greetings from a fan in the UK!
