The Nile's Red Lentil soup

Ok so ever since my undergrad days in Hyde Park I've loved the red lentil soup from the Nile restaurant on 55th Street. Unfortunately I live far enough away that it's a rare treat to get down to HP and indulge. I've tried to replicate it and keep failing. And now I'm very very pregnant and craving its creamy lentilly goodness.

I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have a recipe that comes close? I asked the owner once but he wouldn't share!
