Sweet Potato-Ginger Soup. Holiday Soup For The Soul. Before we get to this incredible soup, there are a couple things I need to get off my chest. 1) Eric and I have lots of nicknames for each other.

Holiday Soup For The Soul

Two of our favourites are: ‘Pinky’ and ‘The Brain’. Remember that show? Depending on the day, we fight over who is Pinky and who is The Brain. 2) When we are trying to decide what to do at night or on the weekends you can often hear us say to one another, ‘Gee Brain, what do you want to do tonight?’ 3) We also have a special voice just for Sketchie. Eric said (in Sketchie’s squeaky voice), ‘Not impressed’. We are totally normal. Last night, Eric said I could be ‘The Brain’ because I whipped up this amazing soup. I turned Eric, a former non-soup lover, into a soup lover in just over 10 years.

Years ago, two of my favorite neighbors hosted a soup party.

Coconut Red Lentil Soup Recipe

It was an inspiring affair - big pots of simmering soups and stews, house full of chatty, friendly people. Part of what I liked was the simple premise. The hosts (David & Holly) made a number of soups, guests were asked to arrive with their drink of choice and one thing to share - salad, appetizer, or something sweet. One of the vegetarian soups was a beautiful shade of yellow-orange. It was a light-bodied, curry-spiced coconut broth thickened with cooked red lentils and structured with yellow split peas.
