This is my favorite recipe for lentil soup. It’s unlike any other lentil soup i’ve ever had: incredibly delicious, hearty, a little bit sweet, great flavor. The recipe is adapted from the one in Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc At Home, with changes to make it quicker & easier.


  1. 1Fry bacon in canola oil over low heat for 20-25 mins until browned but not crisp. Remove bacon from fat and set aside.
  2. 2Saute carrots, leeks and curry powder in the bacon fat, season with salt, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 30-35 mins until tender.
  3. 3Add potatoes, lentils, sachet, stock to the vegetable mixture and simmer 30-40 minutes until lentils are tender.
  4. 4Add vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Serve with bacon & cilantro garnish, sour cream optional.
