March is a difficult month in which to know how to cook. One day it is sunny and gorgeous, the next day it is snowing or hailing. For me, as for many it seems, this past month has been incredibly busy. And so it is wonderful to have an easy, comforting soup to make when the weather turns cold.
That is why I love Heidi's "Lively Up Yourself" lentil soup recipe over at 101cookbooks. I've made it a couple times now, and both times have been good. It's a very simple soup but somehow is perfect on a cold evening.
I added generous sprinkles of paprika, cumin, and salt, and didn't bother with the yoghurt topping (although I'm sure it is good too!)
