    The Mad Slovak's Note:

    This recipe is from the Williams Sonoma "Soup for Supper" cookbook. I think it is exceptionally good. While lentil soup is usually comfort food, this variation makes it a bit exotic, too. The fragrant Indian spices lighten and brighten the simple, homey flavor of the soup. Red lentils have a tendency to break down into a coarse puree as they cook, so if you prefer some texture, omit the blender or food processor step.

    3. 3
      In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
    4. 4

    5. 5
      Add the coriander, cumin, ginger, turmeric, and cayenne and stir to mix well.
    6. 6
      Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, to release the flavors of the spices (2 to 3 minutes).

    8. 8
      Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to low, cover partially, and simmer until the lentils are very soft (30 to 40 minutes).

      I omitted the cayenne, and didn't puree the final mixture. I'm sure this affected presentation, but it leaves the soup with that wonderful red lentil texture. Delicious blend of flavors - very healthy and exotic!
