Soup is on

February is cold, rainy, yucky and sometimes depressing. On that positive note…I tried to perk up with two delicious soup recipes from the Jan-Feb issue of Milk Street. I used the Instant Pot to make the Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Aleppo Pepper Oil. (It doesn’t call for the Pot, I just decided to give it a try.) While that was cooking I made the Red Lentil Soup with Coconut Milk and Spinach. Both were good but I personally liked the Coconut one better. Anything with coconut, typical Indian spices and spinach has my vote!

Cumin I love you. Please don’t notice my lazy garlic in the jar, shhhhhh!

Heat Aleppo Pepper flakes in Olive Oil, yum. I saved this to use on pizza soon.

Such wholesome goodness and quick options for a mid-week meal. Why not serve them with homemade pita .

    1. It’s essentially an electric pressure cooker. Super popular right now. Everyone I know got one for Christmas lol. ❤️ it for doing dried beans.
