    DenaP's Note:

    As an anemic, I try to keep my iron up by eating the right food, rather than supplementation. This soup is a variant on a basic spinach and red lentil soup (thanks, English_Rose!) with extra ingredients chosen for their high iron content. If you love Indian food, you'll love this soup! I happened to make it after having boiled a beet, so instead of vegetable stock, I used the water from the beet, which added a nice extra flavour. (NB: an iron-rich diet should be undertaken with advice from a professional.)

      I loved this soup the flavor is so good and the smell of it cooking is mouth watering. I made toasted buttered pita breads with it and even served the leftovers to my husband with eggs. He really enjoyed it too thanks so much!
