Spooky Writer’s Planner by Loren Rhoads and Emerian Rich - Deck the Halls with Books Holiday Extravaganza

The Absolute Best Red Lentil Soup
by Loren Rhoads

When you’re trying to carve out some writing time on a rainy (or snowy) Saturday, it’s great to put together some soup – and then write while it simmers. This is one of my favorites.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 medium carrots, finely chopped
1 rib celery, finely chopped
1 cup dried red lentils
2 T tablespoons tomato paste
½ teaspon ground cumin
pinch of ground red pepper
5 cups reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
6 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt or sour cream

Heat oil in medium pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery and sauté about 3 minutes or until vegetables start to soften.

Stir in lentils, tomato paste, cumin, pepper, and broth. Raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes or until lentils are soft and soup is thick.

Ladle into bowls and top each with a tablespoon of yogurt or sour cream.
