    dicentra's Note:

    This is from my Low-Fat Moosewood cookbook. Your house will smell like an Indian restaurant! The soup is a beautiful dark gold color. Don’t use green or brown lentils, it just won’t be the same. This makes a lot, but you can freeze it. Even my one year old loves this! Serve topped with plain yogurt and chopped cilantro. Pass pita bread.

      Tastes wonderful. Since I doubled the recipe it took a while to prepare the vegetables- peeling and chopping sweet potatoes and onions, grinding ginger, cutting the tomato and the like. I used the blender and the result is a creamy, golden soup. Low calorie. Worth the effort.

      Excellent soup! I expected the color to be more yellow, but it is a lovely vibrant orange. All of the flavors work really well together and make this soup spicy (but not overly hot), savory and a little sweet --- nicely balanced! I used gala apples, but I would love to try this with something more pungent next time, like granny smith. A great, rich, filling and healthy soup that the whole family enjoyed (19 months and up!) Thanks!

      Delicious! So much flavour and the texture is lovely. I made the full batch so I could freeze some for busy weeknights later. I'll definitely be recommending this recipe to friends and family. Thank you.
