This sounds great--we've got some extra cooked lentils in the fridge right now that need a little love!

And to add to confusion, here in the Midwest you can't always tell if someone really wants to know how you are when they ask... sometimes we really want to know and other times it is just a greeting. Heh. The wonderful world of social interaction.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Ruhama. Indeed, the world of social interaction is wonderful :)

Rachel @ The Crispy Cook

A vibrant looking soup! Thanks for sending it over to Cook the Books.

Frank @Memorie di Angelina

I've never seen black lentils before! Need to search them out. I, too, prefer the smaller, more compact lentils. Love how they keep their shape.


I love beluga lentils and they are perfect to stand up to all of the veggies in this soup. It looks so hearty. I love the color and that generous topping of fromage blanc too! ;-) Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

Beautiful photographs and resulting soup!

Camilla Mann

This looks absolutely fabulous! So colorful and - I'm sure - tasty. Thanks for sharing with Cook the Books.


Such an inspired soup, Simona. Beautiful, truly.


Your soup sounds delicious. Those little black lentils would be excellent in a summer salad too. Insightful review, and I would agree, the book had funny moments, a sad commentary on human bias, but a tad superficial.


Simona I am always impressed where you find interesting varieties of familiar ingredients. The book was a nicely entertaining read, but not filled with deep insights as you said in your post.

Simona Carini

Thanks to you, Rachel. I always appreciate when a reading gets me thinking.

I hope you find some, Frank: let me know. In this soup you can't see their color, but they do well in salads and stews.

You are welcome, Deb!

Grazie, Debra.

Thank you, Camilla.

Thank you, Debra.

I am sure, Claudia. It's nice to have a stash in the pantry: they are versatile and so good. Thank you!

I hope you can find some of these lentils, Cathy: they are quite nice. Let me know.
