Lentil soup

I know, I know, lentils sound like a very boring dish, but I can promise you this version is delicious, easy and warm. It is like a hug in a rainy day! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • Carrot, 1
  • Celery, 2 sticks
  • White onion, 1
  • Red Lentils, 150g
  • Water, 750 ml
  • Bouillon Powder, 2 tablespoons
  • Salt if needed
  • Olive oil
  • Paprika as you like

Recipe:

  1. Peel the carrot and chop it in pieces, you don’t have to be too tidy
  2. Cut the celery very roughly
  3. Cut the onion very roughly
  4. Put the vegetables in a pan
  5. Add water
  6. When the water is boiling, add the bouillon powder
  7. After 10 minutes or when the carrot is soft, take the vegetables out of the water – LEAVE THE WATER IN THE PAN
  8. Put the vegetables in a blender and mash them
  9. Once they are creamy, put them back in the pan that still contains the water and and bouillon power
  10. Now you can do 2 things: either you add the lentils in the pan or you cook them separately (I use this option so I am going to tell you what I do)
  11. Put the lentils in another pan containing water only
  12. When the the water boils reduce the heat and leave the lentils to boil until tender
  13. Once they are cooked, add them to the mixture of carrots, celery and onions
  14. Add the paprika
  15. Add some olive oil and stir everything for 2-3 minutes
  16. Add salt if needed

Love it!!!
