How to Make Lentil Soup

December 17, 2019

I have been trying to make us a lot more hearty, homemade soups lately. They are a great way to get nutrients in and keep warm during the winter months.

G and I love lentil soup. It's a staple food where we come from, so it reminds us of home and fills us up. We often have a big bowl of it for dinner and are full!

It also makes a great soup for the festive season, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.



What you need:

- 2 Onions - chopped

- 2 Carrots - chopped

- 1 Large baking Potato - diced

- 1 cup of Red Lentils

- 1 teaspoon of Cumin

- Salt & Pepper

- Olive oil


How to:

- Chop your onions, carrots and dice your potato.

- Heat up some olive oil, throw in the onions, carrots and potato.

- Add in the cup of red lentils, followed by 6 cups of water.

- Add your seasoning, I prefer to hold the salt until the end to avoid overloading the dish with salt.

- Bring to boil, then let simmer for about an hour.

- Once all the vegetables are very soft, grab your hand blander and blend everything together.

- You should end up with a nice soft and thick texture.
