Family Lentil Soup – Megan Stoddard
This lentil soup is a descendant of one my mother used to make (and still does). My version has slightly different seasonings from hers, but it remains a very hearty and delicious soup. A good meal for cold days, this vegetarian soup is apt to appeal even to committed meat eaters.

Hearty Curried Vegetable Soup with Lentils (Vegan) – Joy Mosenfelder
This is has a nice rich flavor and keeps well in the refrigerator or freezer.  The soup will thicken and intensify over time, giving the leftovers a deeper more complex flavor. This soup is very filling and goes well with rolls or with cheese and crackers.

Lentil Soup with Cumin – Jennifer Hinders
Lentils are extremely healthy as well as delicious. When cumin is added to lentils, it creates a memorable flavor hit for anyone’s palate.

  1. I became addicted to lentil soup on a recent trip to Greece and Turkey. Thanks for these recipes. Am printing them out as we speak.

  2. We had this Armenian restaurant that had the best lentil soup ever.

    They closed years ago and we have never found anything even remotely as good.
    I am trying to read all the A to Z blogs, but coming back to the ones I really like.
    Looking forward to seeing what you do all month!
