Simple Curry Red Lentil Soup


I’ve made a bunch of red lentil soups before, but this is the simplest, and we all really love it (espeically Ellie).  It’s almost as comforting as a bowl of mac and cheese (or maybe I’ve been eating hippie food for too long…) and easy to throw together.

Life lately has been full, but so much fun.  Saturday I did my first ever double brick with Page.  Of course we documented the event with awkward photos in the parking lot afterwards.


I never thought I would find 30 miles of cycling + 30 minutes of running + 20 miles of cycling + 20 minutes of running fun, but this absolutely was.

Sunday we went on a family date to Peet’s.  Ellie is a huge fan of people watching (and dog watching) so it was totally perfect for her.

Ellie turned 18 months old last week and is of course growing up way too fast.  She’s recently become obsessed with a makeup brush.  I probably shouldn’t have let this happen.

So… how about that soup?

    Hippie food!! Hah. 🙂
    Love the simplicity of this — quick & healthy meals are my favorite. Oh, and Ellie is too darn cute with that makeup brush!

    My guy is all about the makeup brushes too. He has his own so I don’t have to worry about him playing with mine.

    Yay, this looks fab. I flipping love lentil soup. I will wait till after the Oakland Half to make this though…lentils aren’t wise for me before races! And yes, my little boy loves blusher brushes very much!

    Yum! We got more snow this weekend (yuck!) and this looks perfect for the cooler weather. Plus having all the ingredients already in the house is a definite bonus.

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was fabulous but soooo spicy! Can’t believe Ellie eats it! Seriously concerned about whether or not we have enough loo roll in the house 🙂
