Carrot and Lentil Soup


 


 

If you love carrots, spices and lentils then this is the soup for you. This soup has lots of flavour from all of the spices and herbs. There is some prep but the outcome is well worth it.

Something I have learnt when cooking lentils be it in a curry, dhal or soup is that fenugreek leaves are a non negotiable for me. The lentils and fenugreek leaves go together like butter and bread.


Lentils created as a soup are so tasty and you can adapt this meal in terms of spices too.
