Apricot Lentil Soup

From: Lentil Recipes: The Ultimate Collection - Over 30 Healthy and Delicious Recipes

I love this soup. It's the perfect blend of tastes and textures. Lentils and vegetable stock form the savoury base, dried apricots add a bit of sweetness, onion, tomato and garlic harmonise with the lentil base to enrich its flavour, black pepper adds a little heat to the mix, thyme lightens it up a bit with its strong, fresh flavour which is wonderfully complimented by the acidity of a little bit of lemon juice added to the soup right before serving.

There are many other recipes in this book that I would also like to try, but whenever I decide to make lentil food, I always end up making the apricot lentil soup. It's just so good...
