Mediterranean Style Lentil Soup
As mentioned in many posts before, I love mediterranean food. Its healthy and tasty too. I have had mediterranean lentil soup many times at a Turkish restaurant here in downtown Seattle, but never thought of making it at home. Ofcourse, I never knew it was so easy to make until a friend of mine made it at home and brought it for me.
Here is my friend's recipe for an easy, healty, tasty and filling mediterranean Lentil Soup. I bet you, once you try it, you will be addicted to it, and would like to eat it every single day. (Thats what I have been doing from past few days:))
1 Cup Red Lentils (Split Red Masoor Dal)
5 Cups Water
Salt to Taste
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
2 Tablespoon Olive Oil,
1 Teaspoon Cumin Powder (Powder made from Roasted Cumin)
2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice (or per Taste)
Method: Mix the lentils, onion, water and salt in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for 15 more minutes. Once the lentils are cooked properly, remove from the heat. Add the lemon juice, cumin powder and olive oil and serve hot.
Thats it, thats how easy it is. You should definetly try cooking this soup once. It tastes exactly the same as the restaurant made ones!!!
