Ingredients

  • 3 cups lentils (soaked in water overnight, and rinsed)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (minced)
  • 2 carrots (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 celery ribs (washed, trimmed, and chopped)
  • 1 sweet onion (large, chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 15 ounces diced tomatoes (with puree)
  • 3 cups bouillon cube (mixed with one water)
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (or two)
  • 1 tablespoon salt (more to season to taste when soup is done)
  • 2 teaspoons pepper (more to season to taste when soup is done)

Directions

  1. I made this in a Pressure Cooker, but if you want to make it conventionally on a stovetop, follow the instructions, and just cook over medium heat for 45 minutes until lentils are soft.
  2. Pour olive oil into cooker over medium heat. Saute onions, carrots, and celery for approximately 10 minutes until onions soften. Add garlic and ginger and saute for 3 minutes. Add curry powder, stir, and add bouillon liquid, and 5 additional cups of water and tomatoes. Stir in lentils and salt and pepper.
  3. Turn heat to high, cover, lock and add thermostat. Bring up to pressure. When cooker begins to steam constantly, turn heat down to medium, and cook at pressure for an additional 8 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let de-pressurize normally. When cooled down, uncover, add pinch of cayenne, stir, and taste. Add salt, pepper, in small increments, stir and taste again until it tastes how you want it.
  5. Serve in bowls with a touch of sour cream and parsley for garnish.
