    Curry Lentil Soup

    I came across a recipe last year for curry lentil soup and I made the mistake of not printing it out or saving it. I can’t remember where I saw it! I did my best to recreate it though I don’t think this is quite as perfect as that was!

    This is a very simple, basic recipe that can easily be whipped up on a weeknight if you don’t sprout the lentils first. Spice it up or down based on your personal tastes. My version is slightly spicy but not too spicy that my kids can’t eat it. They love this soup!

    Sprouting lentils, like all beans and grains helps the body digest them easier. Here’s a tutorial on how to sprout them. I don’t always sprout mine. I’m lazy and in a hurry sometimes!

    I use homemade bone broth in all my soups. Here’s how to make it.

    This recipe can be made either on the stove or in a crock-pot. I like making soups in the crock-pot for convenience-sake. I just throw all the ingredients in and 6 hours later it’s ready! Love it!
