    dividend's Note:

    There's a Middle Eastern restaurant near me that has wonderful lentil soup. I've been looking for a recipe to recreate it at home, and this comes very close. I really like the flavor that results from cooking the spices in oil first before swirling into the finished soup. The only thing I changed from the original recipe is to omit cilantro - I don't think the soup needs it. This soup is quick, easy, inexpensive, and healthy. [From Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special]

      This was delicious! I had a 1/2 cup of red lentils to use up, so I only made a half batch, but this will become a family favorite!
