Spicy Curried Tomato Lentil Soup

I know its not exactly soup weather, but save this recipe in your mind for a rainy day!  Or make it for lunches for the week if you'll be stuck inside your freezing air conditioned office!  Its delicious, spicy, creamy, and satisfying.  We had it with a big dollop of greek yogurt on top, a piece of crusty garlic bread, and a simple spinach salad.

1 tablespoon butter
½ yellow onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
4 cups tomato soup (homemade or boxed, I used a boxed from Trader Joes!)
1 ½ cups cooked lentils (I used the steamed cooked lentils from Trader Joes)
1 ½ cups cooked rice (I used brown rice)
1 ½ tablespoons curry powder
Kosher salt to taste
In a medium pot, melt the butter over medium heat and add the onion, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes to the melted butter. Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.  Add the tomato soup and stir to combine. Let simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes.  Add the lentils and stir well.  Add the cooked rice and stir well.  Add the curry powder and then season with kosher salt to taste.  Serve hot.
