It is cold and pouring out today, which makes me want to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and a hot bowl of soup. A nice bowl of Red Lentil Soup chock full of vegetables would be perfect, I thought, this time with some smokiness, using Spanish smoked paprika and fire-roasted tomatoes.
Red lentils and French green lentils are probably my favorite lentils when it comes to making soups. Whereas French green lentils retain their shape when cooked, red lentils soften up and add a nice creamy texture to soups. This lentil soup certainly warmed me up.
