Tomato Lentil Dill Soup

I was honoured to be able to test another recipe for Dreena's upcoming cookbook Eat, Drink And BeVegan! I present to you Tomato Lentil Dill Soup. This is another hit!





Since we finally have snow - yea! - I figured this was the perfect time to make this soup. Again, as with a lot of Dreena's recipes, what a breeze to make! I had everything into the pot in about 20 minutes. I let it simmer and do it's thing and that was pretty much it. This recipe makes a VERY LARGE pot of soup which I like. I froze leftovers for future meals. Now on days when I come home cold and tired, it's good to warm my bones with Tomato Lentil Dill Soup. (got Pink Floyd stuck in my head. Sorry.) What a hearty, nutritious soup! We had it with some fresh crusty bread and it was so filling. And the taste? Very nice. Different from most tomato soups. The dill was a good choice. Jim loves dill and said this soup was a nice balance of flavours and with just the right amount of dill so it wasn't overpowering. Another bonus with this soup - it's extremely economical.



















I took some leftovers to work for lunch the next day and I think it might have been even better. When Dreena's cookbook is released, this is another must try.

Thank you again Dreena!

Lucky you!! This soup looks like it'd quickly be a favourite here! Britty and I love lentils, and she is a tomato soup addict. Lol!

Your photos are gorgeous!

Hey, it looks so good.. great pictures too! Does that by any chance use canned tomatoes? I have a few random canned foods here in my dorm room and that's one of them.. maybe I could make soup!

Tania, yes it does use canned tomatoes! Even adding chunks of canned tomatoes to vegetable soup is good.

I absolutely *love* dill. I bet that soup tastes really good!

I'm not the biggest dill fan, or lentil fan for that matter, but I have NEVER found them to look so tasty as now..especially together. Looking forward to the book!
