Curried Lentil Soup with Carrots

Curried Lentil Soup with Carrots created by Sazza

I love the spices in this. Just a little bit hot, with the flavor of curry that I love. It warms me up inside. I'm always watching my pepper plants which I brought indoors over the winter to see if they have a few peppers on them to put in something like this. My Thai dragon plants have been giving me peppers all along (with a little help!) When I run a little low, I like to visit the Asian grocer for a big pack of green chillis (which are almost just as good), but I like the red ones best.

    I made this soup for the Aussie/Kiwi July 08 Recipe Swap. I've been making a lot of soups lately (being our winter over here) and freezing them for our lunches, so this recipe swap was a perfect excuse to try this recipe out. I'm so glad I did! It is a beautifully flavoured soup with the spices not being too over-powering. The lentils give it a lovely thick texture which is both filling and warming on cold days. I didn't have any fresh chillies, so I added about a teaspoon of chilli flakes. I also added a teaspoon of ground coriander because I wasn't planning on using any fresh herbs as a garnish but I still wanted the flavour of it in the soup. My husband and I both loved this soup and it is one I will make again regularly. Thanks Sue L!
