Red lentils soup with feta cheese and cashews is our vegetarian option for the 7 Weeks of Lent Recipes Series. Red lentils are a beautiful ingredient. They have a nutty flavor, cook faster and are softer than the brown or green lentils varieties.

You can pair the red lentils with vegetables that have a sweet flavor profile, like carrots, pumpkin, squash or zucchinis. But you can use for stews and curries, and even for purees to serve as a side to a dish of your choice.

Red lentils are very popular in India where they used them to prepare a recipe called lentils dal. Lentils do not contain cholesterol and are high in fiber. Making it a great choice for diabetics or those looking for a heart healthy diet.

And now that we are celebrating lent my reflection today is about forgiveness and how important it is to forgive those that have hurt us as well as asking for forgiveness if we are in fault. Forgiving and asking to be forgiven is such a liberating thing. We don’t need to live our lives hostage to those times when we have been hurt or when we have hurt somebody with our actions. Forgiving allows us to move on and live a more peaceful life.
