Red Lentil Soup Recipe

Red Lentil Soup with Yogurt and Garlic

Prior to visiting Turkey, I had never tried red lentils. But in Istanbul you can’t go to a restaurant that features local dishes without running into red lentil soup. As I’ve found out, the red lentils can be more convenient to work with than some other dried legumes because there is no need to soak […]
