It was soup this week for our assignment in French Fridays With Dorie. We made an Orange-Scented Lentil Soup. This soup did have orange peel in it and the taste was quite refreshing. It did not have an overpowering flavor. It was quite good. You make this soup like you would start any lentil soup. Cook some onions, carrots, and celery in some olive oil. Add chicken broth, spices, lentils, and orange peel ( a change from my regular lentil soup). Cook for about 90 minutes or until the lentils are soft. Season with salt and pepper while the lentils are cooking. This soup smelled divine as it was cooking. After the soup was done, I let it cool and pureed it in my blender. I returned the soup to the pot and reheated it. I served my soup with some chopped Black Forest Ham. As I said earlier, this soup was quite good.
You can find this recipe on pages 90-91 in "Around My French Table."
