Trader Joe's Fan - Bulgarian Lentil Soup
Reviews (2)

What a fabulous recipe to mix the ever popular Eggplant Garlic Spread and the I-would-love-to-buy-this-but-what-do-I-do-with this Steamed Lentils.

Very good
Thanks, Chef Marcus! I make soup every Sunday for a week of work lunches, and, I'm never without the Steamed Lentils (I wouldn't ever have Jovanna's problem!), so this was an easy fix and quite good. If you want to incorporate more lentils into recipes, Jovanna, the very best I've cookbook I've ever read for lentils is the USA Pea Council cookbook (available from their own website at It is just EXCELLENT for cooking with chick peas, peas, and lentils. It isn't vegan or vegetarian, it's just all around good cooking, and plentiful comforting recipes which are not obscure or too foreign. I even made Lentil Banana muffins that were excellent. I often use TJ's steamed lentils in place of cooking my own. I just adjust cooking times accordingly, to add precooked lentils to any one of the excellent recipes.

Also, on this site, is my favorite salad ever -- a lentil salad I make with two kinds of lentils, both from TJ's: The steamed, and the black beluga. I could make it in my sleep, it's that good.

Anyway, Chef Marcus, the soup was great!
