Seven soups every Saturday: red lentil soup recipes
What's the difference between red lentils and brown ones? Color (obvious). Size (red lentils are smaller). Sweetness (yes, lentils can be sweet, and red ones are sweeter than brown). And, as fast as brown lentils cook, red ones cook even faster, which makes them perfect in soups. Red lentils might sound exotic, but they're easy to find in supermarkets, Indian groceries, and anywhere Bob's Red Mill products are sold. Some markets sell them in bulk bins; you can buy just as much as you need for a batch of soup. Red lentils don't need a presoak, so you can make lentil soup on the spur of the moment.
