Curried Lentil Soup E-Meal

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 LB bag of lentils
  • Diced carrots
  • Sauteed yellow onion
  • Halved Cherry Tomatoes
  • Kale
  • Chicken and Beef Bouillon
  • Water
  • 1-2 TBS Olive Oil
  • Minced garlic
  • Garlic Powder
  • Garam Masala
  • Curry
  • Turmeric
  • Salt
  • Pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Saute the onions in olive oil.
  2. Once the onions have softened, add the lentils and garlic.
  3. Add water and carrots and bring to a boil. (It helps to microwave the carrots for a little while first to speed up the softening process; select how long to microwave depending on your microwave’s strength.)
  4. Once the water is boiling, add the bouillon cubes. I use 6-8 cubes per large pot.
  5. Add the spices to taste; it takes a lot of curry powder and turmeric for my preference.
  6. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.

NOTES:

  • I prefer eating soups the next day because I think the flavors settle better. I usually try to prepare soups a day ahead, but when you eat it the same day, it tastes great too.
  • I often eat this as a stand-alone soup or serve it over parboiled or brown rice.
