Suddenly Soup




Since Sunday, I have had soup three times - Thai soup with glass noodles and chicken from Ghang (too salty), Japanese soba from Taro (my favorite sushi place, and I only ordered soup!), and last night lentil from Zaytoons (amazing.) This is unremarkable except for the fact that until recently, I was sort of terrified of soup. Not in the same way that bananas disgust and repel me, but rather a resonating fear that I would eat soup for a meal and not feel satisfied (stew is of course a different story.) But ever since I discovered the Zaytoons lentil pot of joy, my eyes have been opened, and I am a soup lover. I've been making the red lentil soup that was in the Times a few weeks ago. I made a chipotle black bean pumpkin in Denver over the holidays. All I want is soup. That's all I have to say about that.
