Curried Pear and Lentil Soup – Original Recipe

Image

I’m living with a good friend who knows how to cook really well but doesn’t use any of the spices that I’m familiar with. Yesterday, I was itching to cook but too tired to go out and do shopping. After searching the internet with the various ingredients that inspired me, I decided to set out on my own and create the culinary experience I was looking for.

So here you have it – Curried Pear and Lentil Soup by yours truly. (Please read list of ingredients and quantities with a grain of salt… as per the usual, I do not measure and I’m relying on memory after a full day of reading.

Ingredients

  • onion, diced
  • garlic cloves (3-4), loosely chopped
  • olive oil
  • 6 cups of water
  • 2 vegetable bullion cubes
  • 2 cups dried lentils
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of curry
  • pepper and salt, to taste
  • 3 pears, chopped (leave skins on)

Saute onions and garlic in oil. Add rest of ingredients and bring to boil. Simmer until lentils are soft (approximately 20 minutes). Enjoy.
