Curried Lentil Soup Recipe & Favor Jar

My sister wanted to give something practical and useful as a wedding favor so she decided on this delicious Curried Lentil Soup recipe. If you read this post on the traditional Middle Eastern lentil soup recipe that I learned from my mom, you already know that I love lentil soups, but the curry in this recipe really takes things up a notch. This soup is such a wonderful comfort food and is very filling. I recommend it whether you’re thinking of giving it away as a favor or not!

What you need

We split the Good Housekeeping recipe in half. This makes about 4 cups.

In bottom of each glass jar, 
place 4 ounces red lentils
1/2 tablespoons dried onion 
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder 
4 ounces green lentils, 
1/4 cup apple pieces, 
and 1/2 tablespoon parsley, in that order. 

What you  need to do:

Place ingredients in a saucepan. 
Add 3 1/2 cups water
Heat to boiling on high
Reduce to low, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes
Add salt and pepper to taste
