This story is not meant to turn you off to this soup. Cause it’s really super delicious. But here goes:
I make my daugther’s baby food. She’s ten months old and I’m trying desperately to make sure she has an adventurous palate. I decided to try lentils with her a few weeks back and figured I’d introduce them with yam, since she seems to adore yams.
I added a little of this and a little of that, cooked it and pureed it. Then I tasted. I always taste her food because honestly, why would you feed it to a baby if you wouldn’t eat it yourself? Seriously.
And you guys? It was DELICIOUS. So delicious that I ate part of that batch for my lunch that day.
Yes, I dine on baby food. Whatever.
I got to thinking that it would be even MORE delicious with some spice. Curry, to be exact. I’m kind of a curry fiend. It adds a depth to this soup and makes it truly satisfying. For under 100 calories a serving. I KNOW.
Add more or less curry to your liking. Serve with a dollop of greek yogurt and some pita chips. Inhale.
