Curried Red Lentil Soup

by Tenina Holder

Desperation strikes. Home from long O/S trip, no time (or inclination to cook), needing to blog, lest you think I have deserted you, and this is a tasty and hot little soup that is easily made in either HMP, or Thermomix. Winter is upon us in Perth it would seem; I was in NYC just over 2 weekends ago and sweating it out. Now it looks as though I will be freezing for at least another couple of months. I think I am going to be spending more time on Crio Bru in the months to come as well, so enjoy these recipes whilst they are coming at you….the end is nigh! Should you wish recipes to keep coming, you are going to have to yell louder than you have been…really!
