Author Notes: Wanna know where my sister Vicky has been for the past week and a half? Back home in Barcelona, on a “blog-business” trip. Yep, we figured we needed recent pictures to post and also to pick my mom’s brain for some more recipes. And I bet you anything I can guess what my mom had ready for them when they got back from the airport…some warm red lentil soup with cilantro.
—May I have that recipe
pound of red lentils
tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

- In a large soup pot, boil lentils in salted water, until tender.?
