It is still winter here in New York and living in Rochester makes it feel like winter is the only season that exists. When it is so cold outside, all you can do is stare out the window and wish the snow away, but then you come to realize that the snow magically disappearing is just not going to happen, so the only thing left to do is to go into your kitchen and make a hearty bowl of any kind of soup to warm up your body and soul.
I love red lentil soup. It’s hearty, filling, and very healthy. I was even surprised to discover how much protein is in red lentils, makes me feel even better about making this soup for dinner! This soup is really spicy, but if you are not a fan of “spicy” then just omit the paprika and cayenne pepper. Everyone makes red lentil soup slightly different. It is common to see this soup as a puree, but I love to chew the little beans so I like mine a little chunky. However you like your lentil soup, be sure to try out this recipe because the flavors blend really well together, trust me, you won’t regret it! Enjoy!
