I love lentil soup and its a very common dish in Greece. I sometimes make it without tomatoes but when I saw the combinatin curry, lime, sultanas and yogurt I knew I had to try it. It was so very good! I had trouble finding lime but I finally managed to get some. After I tried it this way, I made it again next week with some changes in order to reduce the fat furhter. So I used plain water instead of stock and reduced the sultanas in half. I liked it more that way. It wasn't so sweet and that is my kind of food. A keeper for the next winter. Thanks Tigerduck!
I followed directions to a "tee" but didn't enjoy this soup as much as I thought I would. Something was missing. I think I was looking more for a "Muligatawny" type soup but with lentils. My family agreed that something was missing.....
Ooh tigerduck, this is delicious!! I've always been told citrus goes well with lentils but I never got around to squeezing that lemon juice on top of my lentil soup - and boy have I been missing out! The addition of lime juice and zest is awesome! I didn't feel this needed any additional salt. Also, omitted the sultanas - not a big fan. :-) I can see how a sweet flavour would work with the spices and the zestiness of the lime, however. The yogurt is such a lovely addition as it rounds out the flavours beautifully, but I actually like this even as-is. I've now inhaled one portion of this and thrown three servings to the freezer - I'm looking forward to my lunches next week. Yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!
