Quick Red Lentil Curry Soup Recipe

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

• 32 ounces vegetable broth
• 2 cups peeled and diced red or white potatoes
• 1-1/2 cups sliced carrots
• 1 cup red lentils, sorted and thoroughly rinsed (see note)
• 8 ounces cremini or white button mushrooms, diced
• 1/2 cup filtered or spring water, plus more as needed
• 1/4 teaspoon curry powder

Instructions

1. Put all of the ingredients in a medium-sized soup pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, decrease the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and the lentils are soft. Add more water, as needed, if the soup becomes too thick as it cooks. Serve piping hot.



Chef’s Note: To sort the lentils, spread them out in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Remove any stones, dirt, broken lentils, or other debris. The lentils are now ready to be rinsed and used in your recipe. You may also sort split peas or dried beans in this manner.
