Lentil Soup

I tried out this recipe from Cookie and Kate recently. While my version isn't quite there yet, I wanted to note down the basic steps for future editing!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Chop and prepare onions, garlic, and carrots. Smaller pieces seem to work better and melt into the soup.
  2. Pour olive oil into large pot over medium heat. More oil is better for this recipe.
  3. When the oil looks shimmery, slide in the onions and carrots. Cook until translucent.
  4. Add garlic, cumin, thyme, and curry powder, and stir until fragrant. Pour in tomatoes and cook until they no longer taste like they came from a tin.
  5. Add lentils, broth, and however much water you want. Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until lentils are starting to melt.
  6. At this point, season until things start to taste right, especially with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  7. Add in chopped greens and cook until softened. Remove from heat and add in lemon juice until you feel like there is a good zing to it. Serve while hot.
