Red Lentil Soup is ready in minutes!

Red lentils are very quick cooking, and promptly dissolve in the soup, forming a natural emulsion.

I adore lentils, and why not? Easy to use, inexpensive, and a nutritional treasure. And there are so many kinds of lentils, all delicious! Have you tried my Moroccan Lentil Soup?

Turn red lentil soup into a sauce!

Use much less liquid, say about half the liquid listed, and use the thick puree as a delicious sauce to dunk your bread in. This will make a terrific filling for savory crepes 1oo!
