Bombay Lentil Soup for a Head Cold

It seems like 2 weeks that this head cold has been with me but the reality's only been a few days. It drains your energy level something awful so an easy fix for a hot comforting lunch was a convenience food from Tasty Bite. I doctored this packet of lentils up with some vegetable broth and it was wonderful.


 These little packets are meant to cook 1 minute in the microwave and would be good poured over rice. The quality of the product is excellent and it's packed with flavorful spices such as coriander, ginger, chiles, mango powder and turmeric. Obviously there are lentils, tomatoes and onion in there too. 👌

 Homemade is always the best but these packs are lifesavers for an emergency lunch or a tired cranky sick person.

Head colds are so miserable and this sounds perfect! I don't think I've had this brand before but I love the spices you mention and it sounds like it'd be perfect for a cold rainy day!

Hope you are feeling much better--head colds are no fun. This looks like a quick and easy way to eat something warm and tasty when you just don't feel like cooking. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
