CURRIED RED LENTIL SOUP When you’re in the mood for something decadent tasting but not a heavy meal, this will do just fine.  Silky smooth and slightly spicy, with an exotic bent that is luxurious and comforting, this soup takes no time at all.  I used chicken broth, but using vegetable broth makes it completely…
