READY IN: 1hr 7mins
Recipe by Studentchef

This is a nice fall-winter dish, although you could probably enjoy this year round. Since playing RSC #9 I actually fell in love with lentils, and they definetely go a long way in any recipe.

I made this for todays lunch thinking it would be perfect for a windy and rainy day. I like the basic soup but I must agree with Rita that it would benefit from more seasoning. I made a 4 serving amount and 1/3 tsp of paprika and 1/2 tsp of cumin doesn't go far in adding much flavor. At taste test time I quickly added a heavy dose of dry veggie stock, quadrupled the ask for seasoning and 2 rounded tsps of curry powder. I felt that helped it a lot. I do recognize that seasoning is a personal taste matter and that my additions might be too much for some.
