    LSL United

    Just occured to me that the humanity can be divided into two:

    Those who love lentil soup and those who do not.

    Which group do you belong to? Please take the poll!

    If you a lentil soup lover, then declare your allegiance to the Lentil Soup Lovers United here.

    I am afraid I am in the indifferent group.
    But it's GREAT with vegetable crackers.
    Naked except for a cigarette, you let your mind drift and forget your disbelief. Feel the chill down your back and the flutter of wings through dandelion fields, and forget the pull of gravity in a night without stars.

    I lack eloquence and commitment to my arguments. They are half baked, and I will begin passionately, and then abandon them.

    My youngest got his teeth very late, I think his first tooth came in shortly after his 1st birthday, so I made lentils for him all the time for a substitute protein because he, as you would imagine, had a hard time with meat. He loved it and we all enjoyed it as well but now he won't touch them so I never make them anymore...it makes me sad.

    feet lovely and still as sleeping doves,
    porcelain bones strong enough to carry a life,
    but weighty and unmovable
    As black Dakota hills.

    I put like, but this is Middle Eastern Lentil Soup not some other kind. I don't conceptualize lentil soup as something else.

    lentil soup is a traditional dish in the region where my mother is from. I love it, but unfortunately, I've lost the recipe, which she has given me several times.
    what kind of lentil soup do you mean, Sher? the one from my mother's region is more like a broth. it's basically only lentils, some laurel leaves, cloves, vinegar, onions, little bits of carrot, and bacon or sausages for non-veggies.

    I had it once and didn't care for it, haven't tried it since. Lentil soup isn't too popular around these parts.

    I spent years making lentil soup day in day out for the cafe I worked in. I would come home smelling like I was in fact made of soup. You would probably think I hate the stuff but I love it and still make it a lot during the cold winters. YUM!

    I had dal but the image in my mind of "lentil soup" is different.

    The picture there doesn't look like soup to me, it looks similar to what we have at Xmas and New Year, lentils with some kind of sausage. It's supposed to bring good luck with money

    The red lentil kind:



    Most people leave the lentils whole but I cannot stand lumpy food so put it throught the blender.

    There is a dish very similar to the one you posed (without the sausages) made with green lentils as well and that tastes great too.

    In winter, lentil soup is a must!

    Dal is definitely a little different than lentil soup... Lentil soup tastes more... lentilly.

    Sounds rather extreme. Do you administer loyalty oaths?

    The way the votes are stacking up it would appear that the two lentil-soup-related groups that humanity is divided into are: those who love lentil soup and those who don't care either way. Which may not be what you expected, but is somehow even more satisfying. I suspect that that split is probably the one that applies to almost all issues: a noticeable number of strongly partisan people, and everyone else pretty indifferent if they think about it at all.

    I find that quite cheering.
