    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

      Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large pot over medium-low heat. Add onions, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper, cover and simmer for 6 minutes, or until onions are clear and soft.
    2. 2
      (If using the crockpot, you would now transfer the onion mixture to your crockpot, add all other dry and liquid ingredients and give it a good stir, and cook on LOW for 8 hours until the lentils are soft. If using the stovetop, please continue to step 3.).

      Add celery, carrots, garlic, cauliflower, curry, and cumin, and stir. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    5. 5
      Add 8 cups of water and increase to high heat, and leave uncovered until it begins to boil.
    6. 6
      When the soup comes to a boil, reduce heat and add cayenne pepper. Let simmer for at least 2 hours, or until lentils are soft.

      This soup was all heat, which I love, but no FLAVOR. I followed the recipe exactly and was very disappointed. I had to doctor it up so that it will be eaten and not thrown out. I added bay leaf, ginger, garam masala, some beef bouillon and reheated. I also added fresh sauteed cilantro and spinach. Much better!

      We really liked this soup. Made as directed with just a tad more spice than directed. Very good, and freezes really well. I used a stick blender and pulsed it several times to vary the texture a little. Thanks for sharing!

      Loved the recipe. I added 2 onions, 2T. Crushed red pepper flakes, 4 carrots and a half a peeled, chopped yam. I also used beef broth instead of vegitable broth. Husband like it...surprise. Thanks, Harlan
