  1. Black Lentil Soup – Always Bet on Black

    Mon, 31 Mar 2014

    There’s absolutely nothing wrong with green lentil soup, but once you start making it with black “beluga” lentils, you’ll have a hard time going back. These black beauties cook up melt-in-your-mouth tender, but still retain their structural integrity, which gives the soup both a thick, satisfying body, and a light, non-starchy mouthfeel. The flavor is wonderfully meaty, especially when you toss in a handful of bacon, and they require absolutely no finesse to prepare perfectly. Just simmer until you have achieved lentil tenderness, adding broth as needed. That’s pretty much it. I’m told black lentils are really good for you, which is weird, since I’ve never asked anybody. Nevertheless, this is a soup you can feel good about putting into your body, unlike that “Bacon Jalapeño Popper Chowder” recipe you got off Pinterest. We’re still right in the middle of soup season, so the next time you feel like a hot bowl, I hope you give this black lentil soup a try. Enjoy! Ingredients for 4 large portions: 2 tsp vegetable oil 4 oz bacon 1 cup yellow onion, large dice 1 cup carrots, large dice 1 cup celery, large dice 1/2 tsp cumin 1/4 tsp dried thyme salt and pepper to taste cayenne to taste 1 1/4 cup black lentils 5 to 6 cups chicken broth, or as needed 1 bay leaf 1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley 1 tsp extra good extra virgin olive oil
