Several years ago, I tried this vegan soup at Deception Pass Grill and I had to have the recipe. Bursting with flavor, this spicy and vibrant soup is not only a pleasure to eat, but is also perfect for these cold winter nights ahead.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil and curry paste in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion, carrot, celery, red bell pepper, and red pepper flakes until onion is softened and translucent, 5 to 10 minutes. Break the bouillon cubes into onion mixture; add lentils and stir.

  • Pour enough water into the pot, so the water line is 1 inch above the lentil and onion mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until lentils are fully cooked, about 40 minutes. Stir spaghetti sauce into the soup and simmer 5 minutes. Stir cilantro and black pepper into soup right before serving.

A nice version of lentil soup. It has a sweet aftertaste. I doubled the red pepper to counter the sweetness. The curry paste and the spaghetti sauce are a nice touch which were both homemade and it may have been why there was so much sweetness. Maybe a splash of vinegar at the end would tone it down a bit. At first it seemed the soup would be very thin almost watery but once I added the spaghetti sauce it thickened up and turned into a hearty lentil soup. I soaked the lentils for two hours and cooked everything in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes. The lentils were a bit more than al dente whole and not mushy but soft enough not to crunch. Thank you lw for sharing this recipe. Read More

I loved this soup. Near the end of the cooking cycle I took hall the mixture and puréed it in the blender then recombined it into the soup giving it a lovely texture. Also doubled the red pepper flakes to make it just a little bit hotter. Delicious. I garnished it with the herbs and a bit of sour cream. Perfectly delicious! Read More
