I will have to make due with a short post filled with a yummy dinner I made last night based loosely on this recipe by Fat Free Vegan. I googled red lentil soup and hers was the first one I looked at. I didn't have time to read what Vadouvan is and I still have not, but I did base my soup on hers. I used some mustard seeds, onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, and paprika and cooked them up with the red lentils and water. After 20 minutes I added a little salt and a can of fire roasted tomatoes. I then served it up on top of a bed of swiss chard along side a salad.
After the soup sat for a minute or two, I stirred in the chard. This was delicious! More on the salad and those seeds topping it another time when I don't feel like my head is going to explode!
