Curried Carrot and Lentil Soup Recipe by MorningStar Kitchen

1 Lb. Red Lentils

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Orange or Red Bell Pepper, Diced

1 Medium Onion, Diced

½ Cup Diced Celery

3 Cups Shredded Carrots

1 Large Golden Delicious Apple, Diced

6-8 Cups Chicken Stock

2-3 Teaspoons French Curry

1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar

½ Teaspoon French Grey Salt

½ Teaspoon Ground White Peppercorns

2 Tablespoons Minced Italian Flat Leaf Parsley

This soup is one of our more popular dishes at the farm. It’s one of those soups that works well anytime of the year, but our favorite time to serve it is during the fall when apples are at their peak. No matter when you serve it, the beautiful blend of colors, textures, and flavors will have your guests believing you slaved all day to create something this spectacular.

 

Heat oil in a large saucepan pan placed over medium heat. Add bell pepper, onion, celery, carrots, and apple. Sauté, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes until vegetables become transparent.

 

Add lentils, 6 cups chicken stock, 2 teaspoons curry, salt, and pepper to the pan. Stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Cover pan and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer soup, stirring frequently, for 15-18 minutes until vegetables are tender and lentils are al dente. Add vinegar and more stock, if necessary to reach desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.

 

Ladle into serving bowls, and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

French Grey Salt
With its artisanal, Old World appeal,
French Grey sea salt is a favorite of professional chefs. Hand harvested from mineral-rich salt beds, we believe this one is the perfect salt for accomplished Home Chefs as well.

White Peppercorns
The pepper of choice in most
European kitchens, white peppercorns are released from their outer black shell by soaking. The process results in a more mellow taste than that of black pepper. And the creamy color works perfectly in recipes that are lighter in color.
