Curried Red Lentil Soup with Chickpeas and Quinoa

Curried Red Lentil Soup with Chickpeas and Quinoa


I had been wondering what exactly a guest post was when Cory, a fellow Canadian with a great food blog of his own, Zesty Cook, asked me to write one. I have been following Cory's blog for a while and and I was excited about doing a guest post for him. It turns out that a guest post is pretty much what it sounds like so head on over to Zesty Cook for the curried red lentil soup with chickpeas and quinoa post and take a look at some of Cory's great recipes and food tips.

Yum! I love lentils of all kinds. I've been on a curried lentil salad kick lately:

In fact, I'm having it for lunch again tomorrow!

I was just wondering what to do with the rest of the quinoa in my pantry. This sounds like a plan.

Helene said...

Congratulations Kevin!

I love lentil soup. I'll have to try your recipe for a change.

I will be posting a new lentil recipe that I tried this week soon.

MMMMMM...I love an excellent lentil soup!!
I love that you have added quinoa, an excellent & healthy grain to the soup! Lovely flavours, Kevin!!

Recently I made your cardamom & mango jam & the taste was exquisit! So, thank you a lot!!

Jamie said...

I love lentils and love using the tiny red lentils to make a wonderful, tangy, spicy dal, which does end up rather like a thick soup. Your soup looks especially luscious!

Melynda said...

I just cooked quinoa for the first time (I know I am late for this grain!) and now this soup is next. Looks wonderful.

Marta said...

congrats of being asked to guest post1 that must be quite the honour :)

mmm i just bought lentils , have never used them, but this makes me want to give them a whirl :) Beautiful dish!!

oneshotbeyond said...

the color on this is so lively! I don't use lentils much...the flavors you blended may compliment them in a way that would make me want to pair them together.

Cookin' Canuck said...

This is a perfect recipe. I will be trying this for sure. I can never get enough chickpeas, and pairing the lentils and chickpeas with quinoa makes this one powerful healthy soup. Gorgeous image too.

Quinoa and Chickpeas are two of my favourite ingredients, so of course this recipe sounds amazing!
Thanks for sharing another great recipe! You rock!

Michael in Phoenix said...

I made this last night, as I happened to have everything on hand. It is delicious! I made it exactly as written, but used sriracha (1 scant teaspoon) for the chile sauce. My family (lovely wife and two teenage boys) went nuts. Thanks for a very good recipe Kevin!

meeso said...

Sounds good, I'm headed over!

Michael in Phoenix said...

You're always welcome. We can set an extra plate anytime!

Elra said...

Truly humble, healthy and delicious!

You had me at yellow with this! Amazing.

cb said...

Made this last night and it was fabulous! The only change I made was using chili powder since I didn't have chili powder! Thanks for the recipe!!

One of the best soups I have made. I substitute the Quinoa with bulgar worked excellent.

Moira said...

Kevin ~ what's your opinion on green/yellow/red/brown lentils ? I know some authentic recipes are specific as to which you use. Do you think it really matters ?

Kevin said...

Moira: I like to try to use the lentils that the recipe calls for but if I ran out or if I wanted to try something new then I would have no problem substituting another lentil in.

Monica McGuiness said...

What a delightful looking soup. And so healthy. Thanks for this.

deliciosoydivertido said...

Hello Kevin, I tried to cook your soup and make it look like yours. Mine looks brown, but tasted very good. I posted on my blog and I tagged you. I really love your dishes. Thank you. Susana @ Delicioso y Divertido.
