blog red lentil soup
This is a wonderful recipe submission from Louma’s kitchen in Austrailia. Louma is of Iraqi descent this family dish goes back many generations.

If you need a little “healing” please try Louma’s lentil soup! (Thanks Louma and Tammy!)

 

 

Ingredients:

1 cup red lentils (dried and split)

1/2 cup fine “spaghetti”  (thread thin cooking pasta or egg noodles)

1 onion chopped

1 pinch of salt

1 teaspoon curry

 

Preparation:

Fill a medium saucepan with 6 cups water.

Put in the lentils straight away and boil on low fire

When there is white foam on the surface make sure to remove it (with a spoon)

Now it’s time to finely chop up the onion and fry in a pan with the curry

Then add the onion to the lentils together with the crushed cooking pasta

Add another 2 cups of water and leave to slowly boil for aprox 10-15 minutes

When the lentils are soft add the salt, stir and now the soup is ready

 

Serve hot with bread rolls and butter, or cheese

Enjoy!
