delicious dahl (lentil soup)

delicious dahl (lentil soup)

Growing up one of my best friends was Indian and her parents owned an amazing Indian restaurant. I was lucky enough that at a very young age before ballet class, I would get the chance to feast on delicious Indian cuisine. It's since been a lasting love affair with curry and spice. Dahl is usually served with rice and sometimes as a soup. This is my version - it makes about 6 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of lentils (or 3 cups) drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup of yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon (about half a lemon)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon of cumin
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne (optional, I like spice!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
  • dash of salt to taste
  • 6 cups of water

Directions:

In a large pot or slow cooker, add all of the ingredients. 

Cook on high for 2 hours if using a slow cooker, or at low to medium heat for 1.5 hours if using a large pot on the stove.

Once the soup is done cooking, let it cool and then put it through the blender. 

The soup should be a thick delicious lentil dream!
