I am often asked how do I have the time to make soup when in reality, soup is one of the quickest meals to come together, especially if you use a pressure cooker.
This yummy soup went from raw ingredients to bowls in less than 40 minutes (I used a traditional pot on a cooktop) and the leftovers are almost as good as the first servings.
The key in this recipe is to use red lentils, green lentils just don’t seem to work as seamlessly with these ingredients. You can omit the potatoes, but they definitely add another tasty dimension to the finished dish.
My neighbor surprised me with some delicious, organic homegrown tomatoes and green peppers. They, however, were super-ripe and needed to be either turned into a sauce or cooked in a casserole. I also had some Soyrizo on hand and decided to make some Mexican Lasagna. The Enchilada Sauce was adapted from Cookie and Cate!
I love soup. During a hot summer day I visited a sandwich shop and asked what the soup of the day was and the waiter replied “they don’t serve soup during hot days”. C’mon soup is good any day, any time!
So what did I do on this 90 degree day. Came home, turned up the air conditioner and put on a pot of soup.
This tortilla soup is souper (sorry, I couldn’t help myself) tasty!
