There has been a lot of changes to my diet and eating habits over the last few month. More fruits & veggies, less junk & processed food, portion control…you know, those sort of things. But I also have been trying to utilize food I have already at home to create a delicious meal. I succeeded with the Hot & Spicy Lentil Soup. I love soup and my DH loves soup as well. Something about eating hot soup in hot weather really is refreshing. This delicious dish of mine is being shared in my 2nd (yes, I am going to count) food blog event! “My Legume Love Affair” is organized by The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this month by Kannada Cuisine. How exciting!
Delicious Rating: This easy recipe meal anyone can cook, from beginner to top chef. The spices will fill your home with such a wonderfully delicious aroma that you will want to cook it again. Some of the spices are Indian based but the soup didn’t really taste Indian at all. Reduce the Cayenne Pepper and cut out the serranos for a more mild but flavorful soup.

This is what I call a ‘Pantry & Fridge’ recipe. All the ingredients are most likely in your pantry and fridge right now, which makes this an easy go to recipe.
The cherry tomatoes where perfect for this soup. They were spoon sized and not overly large with a lot of skin like some tomatoes…(I won’t say anyone’s name!)
