Lentil Soup

Lentil Soup

A warm bowl of lentil soup is one of the most sought-after delicacies, especially in cold weather conditions. In this recipe, we made the traditional lentil soup a little more colorful and combined it with vegetables. Your soup will stand out especially with the wonderful taste added by dried mint, turmeric and cumin.

When serving this soup hot, don’t forget to add Berrak Pickled Baby Hot Peppers and croutons! The slight bitterness of the pickles and the crunchiness of the croutons will add a unique touch to the flavor of the lentil soup. Enjoy your meal!

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add diced onion, carrot and potato. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, about five minutes.

Wash and drain the lentils. Add it to the pot and stir for a few minutes, stirring constantly to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Add hot water, salt and spices.

Let the soup boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer the mixture, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes.

When the lentils become soft, crush them in the blender until they reach a smooth consistency.

In a separate small pan, add the butter and melt over medium heat, then add the flour and whisk constantly until the mixture is slightly foamy and thickened. Add the buttered flour you prepared into the lentil soup pot.

Boil a few more times and remove from the stove.

Divide the soup into serving bowls. Serve hot with Berrak Pickled Baby Hot Peppers and croutons.
