Looking for Lentil Soup?

Best Ever Lentil Soup

“Best Ever Lentil Soup” (link to recipe, below)

On a semi-regular basis I like to check what keywords are driving people to this site. Without fail “lentil soup” in one form or another is on the list. This surprises me as I often think that I am the only person who loves these humble brown beans (they certainly don’t elicit much response when I mention them to others :) ). If you are one such search engine browser feel free to check out any of the 3 most popular lentil posts on this site. And, if you are looking for a traditional Trinidadian lentil soup, you know the one that is bursting with chunks of sweet potato and fluffy dumplings, scroll to the end for details on my ebook “Glam by Request: 30+ Easy Caribbean Recipes”! :)

1. Best Ever Lentil Soup (recipe)
This recipe is redolent with the tastes of smells of what I associate with quintessential French cuisine. As the aroma of bay leaves and herbs meld with the tastes of rich red wine, tangy Dijon, and creamy spinach you are left with a soup that is robust, earthy and wholly comforting. Combine with a rustic slice of bread and a simple green salad and you have a perfect no-fuss, no-mess lunch or dinner.

2. Sarina’s Coconut Rice with Lentils and Cashews (recipe)

This recipe is a staple side dish of mine that I’ve adapted and modified at length through the years. Both colorful and flavourful I think it creates a texturally interesting background for spicy curries and other East Indian flavoured entrees.

3. Sprouting Lentils
Fresh sprouts. There is nothing like them. They are crunchier, sweeter, more vibrant in flavour than anything you can buy on a supermarket shelf.

For more lentil recipes than you can shake a stick at (great expression isn’t that?!)

    I LOVE lentils. Stewed lentils. Lentils as part of falafel. Lentils and rice (Mom’s Syrian jedra or mujaddara). In my mind, growing up, foods were in competition with each other – ochro vs caraili (ochro always lost) – red beans vs lentils (I always preferred lentils) :-)

    I HAD a comment…the internet ate it. :(
    I love lentils. Stew lentils. Lentils in falafel. Lentils and rice in Mom's Syrian jedra/mujaddara. In the onoging competition in my head from childhood days, lentils still beat out red beans. (Certain foods were usually in direct rivalry in my mind…ochroes vs caraili (ochro will never win)…sapodilla vs soursop (sapodilla reigns). Not sure why…seems strange now that I write it down…

    I love lentils. As a matter of fact I cooked lentil soup often (like every other day) until I was able to expand my repertoire. now I cook them at least once a wek. Even my 4 year old loves them and I am hoping my newborn will follow in his footsteps. Also, thanks for the how to grow your own lentil sprouts. I recently saw a recipe that called for it and had no clue what it was. You learn something new everyday. Thanks Trinigourmet!
