Curried Lentil Soup

Curry gives a different taste sensation to this chili-like soup. It’s delicious with a dollop of sour cream. My family welcomes it with open arms—and watering mouths. —Christina Till, South Haven, Michigan

    The only thing I added was a little salt at the end. Otherwise, amazing. I made it in my pressure cooker because I was in a rush but it was still really good.

    This is good but I did up the spices. I used just over 2 tablespoons of curry powder (started with 2 and bumped it up a bit half way through). threw in an extra bay leaf, added an extra 2 cloves of garlic, and added probably close to 2 tablespoons of salt (hard to tell since I adjusted to taste toward the end.) I also added a second celery rib. We loved it. I'd definitely make again with these modifications.

    I made this but with alot of changes( adding more spices) otherwise it would have been very bland. I sent it to my daughter, and later asked her how she liked it, since they love curry. She said I was hoping you wouldn't ask, it was so bland, we had to keep adding more and more spices, it is not a keeper.

    I doubled the recipe, I had no potatoes but I subtituted a bunch of organic Kale. This was a great nutritious soup that my family loved. I am serving what is left over rice later in the week. Very ecominomical for a large family likfe ours. Very good flavor!
