dahl-icious


i didn't intend for this to be a dahl soup. it was a vegan yellow split pea when john said "this tastes like dahl. let's put mint and indian spices in it." the soup was already flavored with sage and thyme, which we thought went surprisingly well with the curry, turmeric and spearmint we added.

cool spearmint balances spicy red curry quite nicely. it's fun to play around with different flavors. i'd love to take a class on herbs and also add more to my garden.

what are your favorite herbs, to eat or grow (or smoke? kidding...=)

  1. That soup looks SOOO good. My favorite herb, if I have to narrow it to just one, is sage. It grows so well - I've got a bunch in the garden - and is pretty versatile, too.

    1. thank you lisa.=) sage is nice. i started growing it last summer and it does grow well, and the bugs don't seem to like it as much as my basil.
