Curried Lentil Soup

This is something I invented while writing an article in my Zine about cooking 5 meals, 4 people for $10! This is one of the recipes that I made from this and my hubby LOVES it even though he doesn't like lentils normally. A definite hit with anyone who has had it. Costs under $2 to make and serves 4 as a meal or 6 as an appetizer.



  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup green/brown lentils
  • 1 (28 oz.) can of diced tomatoes


Fry onion in a little oil, then add carrots, salt, and curry. Stir for about a minute, then add lentils, tomatoes. Fill the empty can of tomatoes with water and add to pot. Bring to boil, then simmer for 30 minutes or until lentils are cooked. Blend the soup and serve with bread!

You said that you had an ezine that tells how to feed a family of four for under ten dollars. Could we have that link? Thanks!
