Soup from last Sunday turned out pretty good. It's based on a recipe from My Recipes, alterations I did are included here for future cooking. I think next time I will double the recipe because this only produced five servings and Lawnchair liked it, so despite eating out twice last week, I had no leftovers to freeze. Also, ground lamb is sold around here in pound packages, so maybe even triple the recipe.

2 tsp olive oil
6 oz ground lamb
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1 1/2 c chopped onion
3/4 c chopped carrot
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3/4 c brown lentils
2 c chicken broth $
1 c water
3/4 c light coconut milk $
1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes
sour cream
fresh cilantro leaves

1. Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl. Add lamb and spices; sauté 4 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and carrot; sauté 4 minutes or until lamb is browned. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in tomato paste; sauté 30 seconds.

2. Add lentils; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in broth and next 3 ingredients (through tomatoes); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes or until lentils are tender. Top each serving with sour cream and cilantro.

I'm gonna have to write down my lentil soup recipe someday, although it's not really 'written'; I usually make it up as I go, seasoning to taste. I tend to use an entire 16oz can of tomato sauce and a fair amount of oregano/Italian seasoning, so it's got much more of an Italian taste to it. The best batch I can ever remember making was with some leftover smoked turkey from Thanksgiving, for what reason I'm not sure; I've tried and haven't been able to duplicate it since. (Though that may just be the mind playing tricks on me.)
