Lentils Turmeric Soup

4 Bowls
1 Hours 10 Minutes

I am currently going through a phase of experimenting with soups especially that it's winter now in Canada. I love a good soup with nothing but natural organic ingredients (including vegetables, legumes, spices).

And there are always so many ways to create the same soup recipe. I had a craving for a lentil soup and decided to make a spin on it, and introduce turmeric which makes it similar to a Persian lentils soup which is called Adasi

It is meatless and easy to make. Best enjoyed with butter on top (a must!) and a piece of pita (ideally persian sangak). And it is best known in Iran as a breakfast meal, yes breakfast :)
