A nice, comforting soup, perfect for these cold days. The lentils provide this soup with a nice amount of vegetable protein and some texture. The spices ensure an awesome flavor.

 

Ingredients

  • 275 g red lentils
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1-1.5 cubes of chicken stock
  • 4 tbsp yoghurt

 

Method

  1. Rinse the lentils until the water that you drain from them is clear.
  2. Prepare the stock by boiling 1 litre of water and adding the chicken stock cubes.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onion and garlic.
  4. Cook until golden, about 4-6 minutes.
  5. Add the tomato puree and cook for 2 minutes.
  6. Add the spices, fry shortly, and then add the lentils and stock.
  7. Bring the soup to a boil and leaver to simmer on low heat for 25-30 minutes. Stir a few times in between.
