So I tried to emulate a lentil soup from a Mediterranean restaurant the other day, did not turn out that well, but was good enough to finish.
I tried to get that yellow color by adding turmeric (probably too much). I used bay leaf, turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, celery seed, a little cayenne pepper, and chicken broth as the base for the soup.
Did not taste like I wanted it to. It was too spicy. Anyone have a good recipe for next time? Sure there a ton of recipes on the web, but I like to come here first.
