Oh my my my - this one is going in my favorite recipes of 2010! Instead of doing this on the stove, I threw everything into crockpot (except olive oil), subbing 2T tomato paste in place of a tomato. I really loved the flavors of the veggies and curry combined with the sweet apples. YUM!
My hubby raved about this soup! I really wasn't expecting him to care for it and had planned a menu using it as a starter. He skipped the rest of the meal and just ate soup. It really had a lovely flavor and was almost sweet. All of the veggies (& that apple) blended together to make an unexpected treat. I used Madras Curry Powder (forgot to add the tumeric) and made several substitutions to use what was on hand & to meet a ZWT4 challenge. I used a turnip in place of the parsnip, mixed lentils instead of only green, and canned tomatoes. Thank you for a keeper!
This is a great, warming and healthy soup packing lots of veggies. I halved the recipe with ease and omitted the oil and used non-stick cooking spray instead to cut out the fat. I added a generous amount of salt and pepper and had to add additional stock but otherwise did not change a thing.
Winter is just around the corner,coming so early this year.Heater's on and I had some soaked lentils,that I use to make a Middle Eastern rice dish. I liked that I could just throw in the veggies at once . I used a Japanese curry powder.Very much enjoyed.
Very tasty! My husband and I both enjoyed it very much and are happy there are leftovers. Sometimes lentil soups seem to be dominated by the lentils but this had a great balance and variety of flavors in every bite. Definitely a winner! I substituted a can of diced tomatoes for the fresh tomato since I didn't have fresh available.
Made for holiday tag. I love lentil soups and this did not disappoint.Loved the curry addition.Its raining, its pouring so this soup was great.
A nice, flavorful soup that I enjoyed for dinner. I halved the recipe. Thank you for a good soup! Made for the Australian Swap.
Great recipe. We've made it four times in the last two months.
