Fragrant Red Lentil and Rainbow Chard Soup

Rating: Unrated
Smells, looks, and tastes delicious. As with many soup recipes, use this as the basis for an aromatic, tasty soup. I've made it with fresh minced ginger, fresh minced turmeric, and fresh ground cardamom. I didn't notice a substantial difference in flavor, but if you like fresh, give them a try.
