Ameira’s Request: Red Lentil Soup Recipe :-) Mediterranean Heart Healthy

Recipe, Soup

Hope everyone affected by this terrible blizzard is safe and that the snow stops all over the country :-) !!  As you can see, I am more of a “sun” person. Are you??? I like driving in the snow though because people are always a lot nicer and more calm.

I had a request for a Lentil Soup Recipe from a reader, and I have decided to post this one. I think this recipe is perfect for a “snow day”.

It includes Red Turkish Lentils which are very easy to cook since you do not need a blender or mixer to create the soup texture. Remember to soak them for at least 1 hour before cooking them.

1 tablespoon olive oil (HEALTHY :-) )
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
3 cups water
1 cup Red Turkish lentils
½ cup carrots, diced
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon tumeric
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro

How To:
1. Place a large soup pot on the stovetop on medium heat, add the olive oil and then sauté the onions, garlic for about 5 minutes or until golden in the heated olive oil.
2. Add the water, lentils, carrots, salt, black pepper, tumeric, cumin. Bring to a boil for a couple minutes then simmer on medium-low for 1 hour or until the lentils are soft.
3. Stir. Top with cilantro and serve. Enjoy!!

Quick and Easy.

Tips: Can also top with rosemary if you want a “lemon” flavor

Please let me know how you like it :-)
