Curried Red Lentil Soup
It was back to Nava Atlas' Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons for this one. It's been a strange, warm winter so far here but the last few days finally feel like winter again. It was 25 degrees when I rode my bike to work this morning and only 40 or so when I came home. Good soup weather. This one came out pretty good though maybe not my favorite of the recipes we've tried from this book. It's good for you that's for sure, with red lentils, sweet potatoes and greens. I mostly followed the recipe but I used collards instead of the spinach or chard. Since collards take a lot longer to cook than the softer greens, I added them towards the beginning of the cooking time instead of near the end like you would if you were using something like spinach. I also went heavy on the ginger but I think that was warming for a cool night.
