Coconut Red Lentil Soup

I was so excited to make this recipe the other day! I thought it was going to turn out to be a beautiful and delicious soup, with yellow split peas, red lentils, bright green scallions, carrots, and more. Most of the recipes I’ve tried from 101 Cookbooks have turned out well.

But it was such a disappointment – certainly an edible meal, but not great. To be fair, I am not sure I toasted the curry powder correctly. I swished it around in a frying pan for a bit, but perhaps not long enough. The soup had a lot of great ingredients, but nothing really stood out. I even let it simmer longer until it was quite thick, as suggested. I won’t try this one again myself, but I wanted to post about it anyway because you do have to keep trying new recipes to find the truly great ones.

  2. Kerry thank you for this post…many of the things I try don't turn out as planned. Good to know its not just me! 🙂 However, I am enjoying some Spaghetti Squash this week–all because of you! -Lee
