Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Dahl Soup

2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion
3 cloves garlic
28 g piece ginger, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tbsp,+crumbled bay leaf
1 1/2 cups red lentils
2 cups Squash Butternut
5 cups vegetable broth

Recipe Directions for Butternut Dahl Soup

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil or ghee and stir in onion, garlic and ginger. Let cook over medium-high til softened and just light browned. Add spices and bay leaf, stirring in. Add lentils, squash and stock and stir over high heat til boiling. Spoon off any froth that rises to the surface. Lower heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

  2. When squash is soft and lentils are fully cooked (about 20-25 minutes), remove bay leaf and puree the soup til silky smooth, or leave as-is (I pureed just a bit). Serve into soup bowls. Top with a dollop of plain yogurt, some sliced onions fried with garlic, fresh chopped cilantro, or stir in fresh baby spinach leaves -- or just keep it simple! Serves 4.
