Re: We need a vegetarian meals thread!

Here's one of my faves--Curried lentil soup:

2T Olive Oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
Baking potatoes, peeled and chopped (I used 2 small ones)
Carrots, peeled and chopped
1 bag frozen cut spinach
2T Curry powder
40-50 ounces of broth
2c red lentils, rinsed and drained

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, potato, and carrot and sauté until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Mix in curry powder and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add broth and lentils and bring to boil. Cover pot, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until lentils are *almost* done (I checked them after 20 minutes, and they may have been overcooked but I don’t mind squishy lentils. The red ones seem to cook really fast). Add spinach and cook until lentils are done (I did about another 5-10 minutes). Enjoy your crazy delicious soup!
