Red Lentil Soup With Lemon

Quick and easy - very tasty payoff for minimal preparation. I've made this soup numerous times and even my kids love it! It was adapted from The New York Times and presented as "Recipe of the Week" in the news magazine The Week. The best part about this recipe is I've never had to adjust the seasonings (although you might want to reduce the cayenne if your family is sensitive to spicy food). Enjoy!
