Curried Green Lentil & Ham Soup

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

This is a healthier spin on an old classic, Split Pea & Ham. This has been one of my favorite soups for my whole life, so this was a delectable and delightful experience!

Green lentils are split pea's healthier lentil cousin, so I decided to give it and shot. I was not disappointed. I couldn't tell the difference, and got the added benefits of lentils! Although split pea is still pretty healthy on it's own. I added bell pepper to kick up the flavor, and curry for a nice surprise. With only a couple weeks left in winter, this was a perfect soup to celebrate the season.

As is with my new tradition, here is this week's preparation video! I hope you enjoy, this ended up Vlog #6 for a 10-day vlog challenge I am currently doing. I am going to move these videos over to my other YouTube channel, so please subscribe if you enjoy watching them ;)
