    I tried making Mary’s Festive Dal soup and I just couldn’t stand it. Mostly because the lentils got cooked to mush. It’s like eating baby food. How did your lentils come out?

    Hi Barbara,
    I don’t think you would like this. Both the red lentils and the sweet potato dissolve and become like mush. I really enjoy this poured over brown rice.

    This looks and sounds great to me. I don’t mind mushy lentils at all. And I have everything to make it already! Sounds like lunch tomorrow!

    By the way, I am loving reading your recipes, and I really appreciate your extra simple ones — I think I make it too complicated sometimes and your recipes remind me that good, plain food can be easy, tasty, and nutritious. Thanks!

    Just ate this – was lovely. I’m stuffed now…

    At the end I added some black and red pepper to taste and substitued the onion for asafoetida powder because I don’t like them.

    Loved it! Keep up your great blog x

    Mmm, this was SO good. I whizzed some of it in the blender to make a creamier soup. GREAT site, I’m enjoying it!

    mmm, I made a big pot of this today. It smelled SO good! I live in a culdesac, and had my front door open, and the armoa was wafting out into the neighborhood. I’m having a big scoop over a baked potato for dinner tonight…cain’t hardly wait!

    Sounds exactly like the type of fast, easy soup i’ll love. Ehiopian food is all about really soft veggies tht you scoop up with a nan bread eh? this sounds just like that.
