Curry Squash Soup with Sorghum and Lentils – a perfect vegetarian recipe for the holidays using your slow cooker or crockpot.
Now is the time of year when my slow cooker becomes my best friend. “Soup,” she whispers in my ear. “Curry Squash Soup,” I think.
With red lentils. And sorghum. Tomato paste is my other best friend this time of year – since tomatoes are not in season, it’s a great way to add some concentrated flavor to everything you cook.
Coconut Milk too, which makes everything taste better because it’s so rich and creamy.
I’ll admit the color is not the most stunning but I assure you, it tastes like comfort, in a bowl. I eat it constantly, for lunch, dinner, snack…sometimes even for breakfast! Who couldn’t use this as a standby during the holidays – as a break between all the heavy, rich meals that seem to come up constantly. I use it to press the reset button – but to still feel like I’m having something that will stick to my ribs.
