It’s that time of year when my soup pot starts getting a workout. Just about every cool fall day, what sounds the absolute best is a hearty, comforting bowl of soup. It’s so easy to get it simmering and then put a quick salad together and throw some bread in the oven.
I have also been on a major lentil kick lately. A bowl of lentils cooked with onions, carrots, served with herbs and topped with a poached egg has been a favorite so far this season. I’ve been looking for something different to do with my lentils, though, and this Butternut Squash Lentil Soup from TK member Sarah of Thyme to Eat looks like it would hit the spot quite nicely. It has the deep flavor of cumin and coriander, and it’s thick enough to be satisfying as a meal on its own. It’s a great recipe to celebrate the flavors of fall and to introduce a lovely veggie option to your soup routine. Click on the photo to get the printable!
Happy fall, y’all!

This recipe was the perfect inspiration for using up the last of a bag of yellow lentils that I have had in my pantry forever and didn’t know what to do with (I don’t like Indian food). Made them into a soup with butternut squash, parsnips, onion, radish and kale plus some garlic, cumin, thyme and salt. The nutty sweetness of the parsnip was a great complement to the squash and lentils. It worked out wonderfully!!!, I didn’t blend it because I don’t have a blender and usually like chunky soups. Thank you so much for the great idea!
