Dairy Free Turmeric Mung Dal Soup

I made this Dairy-Free Turmeric Mung Dal soup earlier this month and we just fell in love with it! I’ve been cooking a bit more this month, and trying simple, healthier recipes. It’s been FREEZING (like record breaking cold) in Virginia the past few weeks, and all we’ve wanted are hearty, hot soups. I had never cooked with Mung Dal before; I bought an [approximately] 1000 pound bag at Costco, and figured soup would be a foul-proof way to try it for the first time. It came out creamy and buttery (but dairy free), and really scrumptious, if I do say so myself! Try it by itself or over a bed of rice. It’s bound to satisfy your craving for creamy, delicious, flavorful warmth!

These gorgeous grey marbled ceramic bowls are made by my Instagram-friend and fellow mama, Jenny Rijke. Her work is stunning, and I have my eyes on everything in her shop, including her jewelry! Check out her work and support small business!

Here’s the recipe for the soup…enjoy!!
