    Just made this to keep me nourished while preparing for Thanksgiving. So delicious (and quick), it has officially replaced my long-standing favorite red lentil soup recipe! Although this one looks (and likely tastes) yummy, I'd like to make an addition: When I do lentil soup, I mostly add one carrot, a garlic clove and one stalk of celery in julienne to give it more impact, plus a good measure of cumin, which makes the lentils more digestible. Oh, and very important: a good dose of cilantro greens! The aroma will be much more profound and very oriental.
