When Life’s Moving Too Fast, I Make Red Lentil Soup
But, a while ago, I promised myself to learn to enjoy the moment no matter what it is! When all goes “Pete Tong” – as the cliche goes in my hubby’s industry – I stop whatever I’m doing and I make red lentil soup. Yes! As some have cheerlessly said before; “You’ve always been a simple gal.”
I hope that never changes.
So, why red lentil soup? This is a take on an old favorite. I’ve always loved lentil soup; particularly the traditional Shorbet *3addas made by many lovely ladies in my family, my American mother to be included. However, the following recipe is one I use throughout the week, when I’m crazy busy but still want to consume a healthy and quick lunch without skipping out on taste, of course!
* The arabic letter 3 (ayn) is pronounced by tightening up your vocal cords & then saying “Ah”.
It’s great alone! But, it’s all the better served with a coriander salsa & crispy arabic bread. Some marriages are indeed made in heaven!
With that said, I’m off to rejuvenate mine!
