Pumpkin Lentil Soup

Share

This is a nice, comforting soup that’s great for chilly weather. It’s vegetarian and full of healthy ingredients. It’s thickened with a can of pumpkin puree, but doesn’t taste like pumpkin at all. Consider the pumpkin a thickener rather than a flavor-enhancer. As written, the soup is subtly seasoned and has a mild flavor. I […]

One of our dear neighbors had to go on a sudden trip and dropped off some of his fresh produce with us. He gave us a bag of arugula, among other things. I like arugula, but I don’t buy it much. Not sure why. I should. I love its peppery flavor. Did you know that […]

Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

I love lentils and I love coconut.   And there’s nothing more perfect than a bowl of hot soup on a cold day.  This soup is very tasty with all of the spices that are in it and it’s a nice change from traditional lentil soups.   The spices and the basil really jazz up […]

French Lentil Soup

I used to hate extra tomato paste… until I found something delicious to do with it!

So yesterday I made turkey meat loaf that called for 2 teaspoons of tomato paste. I hate using just a tiny bit of tomato paste. I never know what to do with the rest. […]
