RED LENTIL THAI-ISH SOUP
Red Lentil Thai-Ish Soup
My husband, who loves lentil soup, was very taken with this dish. It was sorta like a Thai version of lentil soup. My best friend (who was visiting that night) and I are not huge lentil soup fans; we thought the dish was good but not great. The consistency was more like a stew than a soup. It was definitely a hearty vegetarian dish. At around 300 calories and 15g of fat per serving, it's a very reasonable meal for people being careful of such things, so if you dig lentil soup, check it out. To serve with it, I toasted 1 whole piece of whole-wheat pita bread with two teaspoons of butter patted on it. The butter melted and left the pita tasting more like Indian flatbread than pita bread; it was great. We cut the pita into thirds to share.
