Amy’s Curried Lentil soup

Sounds good huh? Yeah, well don’t let the name fool you. I had spent most of my afternoon thinking about having soup for dinner. After leaving work, I went to Whole Foods, thinking I’d have less trouble finding a good vegan/vegetarian soup. True, I had no trouble finding several that looked very appetizing, this one actually making my mouth water. It’s been raining all day here and the prospect of spending a dreary Halloween evening having a delicious curried soup was just enough to make driving home in the rain actually not too terrible.

After feeding The Gang and Sofie, I readied my special soup bowl and toasted some bread. As soon as I opened the can, it wasn’t my mouth that was watering it was my eyes. What the hell? Okay, I know the can says curried, so I deal. After a three minute nuke, and some butter on my toast, I sit in front of the TV, turn on The Thing and take my first spoonful!

Wow! What a disappointment. I mean, it was just meh. Warm soup with lentils, some pieces of chick peas and a bowl full of bland. I suppose I could have added some salt and pepper, but for Pete’s sake, it’s a curried soup! I don’t know about you but to me that means FLAVORAMA! I wound up using it as a dip for my buttered toast and just poured the rest down the drain.

I hate when you eat something you were so looking forward too and it just doesn’t deliver. I feel so cheated! Like I was totally screwed out of my dinner, and since I already ate something I can’t make something else because then I’d feel like a total pig!

My only saving grace will be the chocolate ice-cream I’m going to have in about five minutes! At least I know THAT won’t disappoint. Chocolate ice-cream never does.
