Curried lentil soup - (1 pound lentils equals 2 1/4 cups.) I put in 2 small apples instead of the dried ones, and added 1 t salt, 1/4 t garam masala and a few good shakes of cinnamon. Very, very good. But today I added 1/2 t sugar to my bowl, and an extra dash of cinnamon, even better! But WAY too much; FREEZE HALF!
