A HEARTY LENTIL SOUP RECIPE YOU’LL CRAVE ON THE REGULAR
Dahl (at times spelled dal, daal and dhal) is one of those recipes that looks and sounds exotic – but is actually extremely easy to make.
Hey, at the end of the day it’s lentil soup.
But don’t let the ease of whipping up this dal recipe fool you into thinking it tastes simple. On the contrary, there’s a lot going on in the flavor department!
Yellow lentils are slow cooked with onion and garlic – along with a host of warming spices like turmeric, cumin and cinnamon for a depth of flavor that isn’t spicy, yet packs a real punch.
We’ve added a bit of tomato paste to impart the bright essence of tomato – and finished it off with zingy lemon and garden fresh chopped cilantro.
This dahl recipe is one of our favorite lentil recipes of all time. And you’ll be shocked by how easy it is to make!
