This is a surprisingly light and tangy lentil soup. If you are used to thick and heavy lentil soups, this one will surprise you. It's very tasty and was a great complement to the pizza recipe I just put up. This is also adapted from a Greens restaurant recipe.

Chicken Biryani by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a great Indian dish that I adapted from Cooking Light recipe. They recommend raisins which I leave out. I've also changed the proportions a bit. Our kids universally love this, despite the exotic spices. I generally serve with my Cucumber and Tomato Salad on the side.
