Nourishing Spiced Lentil & Tomato Soup | Rebel Recipes (2)

What’s the difference between a spiced lentil soup and a dhal? Hmmm… A little more water? 😉

I pack my spiced lentil and tomato soup full of gorgeous spices, lots of tomatoes and nourishing lentils with a lovely soupy consistency–but with all amazing flavour of my favourite dhal.

I remember the first time I tasted dhal; I was in sixth form and it was also my first balti experience–yes, living in the UK in the Midlands meant I was lucky enough to start my Indian food journey deliciously.
Of course, it wasn’t long after that I went to India for the first time and it blew my mind with all the incredible food vegetarian delights!

My deliciously nourishing soup is seriously tasty with flatbreads and dips. I like to make a big batch and portion it up for delicious and healthy lunches.

Enjoy xx
