CARROT-LENTIL SOUP

I love this soup.  I could, and most often do,  eat it for lunch everyday.  Curry add the indian flavor I adore and cayenne pepper adds heat.  The carrots are sweet, the garlic is …garlic.  Not only a very healthy soup, it takes about 30 mnutes from start to end.

 

Nothing like a warm bowl of soup on a cold winter day.  Add a sliced apple on the side and you have my version of the perfect lunch.
