CANADIAN PARENTS COMMUNITY


The article below appeared in the Canadians Parents.com website, a parenting community blog. 

Within the article, by veggiemama, Mr. Goudas Curry Powder is prominently mentioned. 

In fact, the Goudas brand is the only one mentioned by name throughout the entire recipe. 

Apparently, there is someone who definitely appreciates the efforts placed by Mr. Goudas in creating this venture of creating one of the finest Curries in the world. 

You may actually read about his curry pained adventure in the mrgoudasbooks.com website in the Books and Articles Section. 

Special thank you to Canadian Parents Community and veggiemama for endorsing our product. 

Vegan Lentil Soup 

December 1, 2011 by veggiemama 

Lentil Soup 
This is a recipe we make about once a week. 
Serve with biscuits or crusty bread and a salad. 
Freezes well, so stock up! 
1 tbsp oil 
3 - 6 large carrots, diced 
1 large onion, finely diced 
3 medium cloves garlic 
1 Tbsp powdered ginger 
2 Tbsp Mr Goudas Curry Powder 
2 tsp ground cumin 
2 tsp ground coriander 
1/2 tsp turmeric (or not, if using curry powder) 
pinch ground cloves 
1 1/2 cups dried red lentils, picked over and rinsed (See Note) OR 1 can cooked, (rinsed and well drained) 
2 cups vegetable stock or water 
1 can tomatoes 
4 - 6 cups water or tomato juice 
1 bay leaf 
1/2 tsp salt 
fresh ground black pepper 
1 can chick peas, optional 

In a large pot heat oil, then add carrots and onion. Cover and cook over medium heat about 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in spices, cook 30 seconds. Then add lentils, stock, tomatoes. Increase heat to high, bring to boil, then reduce to medium and simmer 20-45 minutes, stirring often, until lentils and carrots are tender. 

Lentil Note: If using dried lentils make sure you sort through them before rinsing and adding to soup, as they often contain small rocks! If you are using dried lentils, remember that as they cook they will absorb water and the water level of the pot may need to be topped up. 

Stir frequently so they don?t stick. 

I have been known to add diced squash or sweet potato to this. You can also add 1/4 package frozen spinach
