To me, there is little more comforting than a big bowl of soup.
Soup stands for curling up on the couch under a blanket, warming up after a cold walk outside, for dipping bread. And for generosity: because don’t you immediately feel welcome and at home when there’s a big pan of soup on someone’s stove? I know I do!
And I know this soup is one of my favorites. It’s slightly adapted from a very, very popular recipe by BBC Good Food and it totally deserves it’s popularity. This soup is thick (because of the lentils), spicy (cumin and chili), creamy (milk) and slightly sweet (carrots). It warms you up and satisfies your hunger, but is very light en healthy at the same time.
It’s also made in 25 minutes, and 15 of those are simply waiting time. I love to serve this soup with a dollop of thick and cooling yogurt and –essential to me - some naan bread or flatbreads for dipping.
It’s the soup that will get you through this winter. Promise!
