Gingery Lentil Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Engrossed

I don't remember where I got this recipe but it's good and healthy! If you enjoy a stronger flavor feel free to increase the garlic, ginger and spices. I usually do in all recipes I make but I hadn't made this in awhile so I posted the original.

Great flavor! I did add more of the garlic, curry powder and ginger as others suggested, and I also needed to add more broth simply because it started getting dry before the lentils were done. At that point, instead of chopping more garlic and ginger, I just added a little garlic powder and powdered ginger, and it still tasted great. Thank you for sharing this!
