What could be a better choice for a hearthy soup than the one recommended by the bible itself? Easy, tasty lentil soup recipe!
As I most recently have some time, I was searching on the internet a few days ago. Looking for fresh, challenging thoughts, inspiring meals that I have never tasted before, to surprise my family with. Looking for a while unfortunately couldn’t find too many interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and easy treat simply by chance over Suncakemom. It looked so delightful on its image, it called for urgent actions.
It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it’s created, its taste and just how much boyfriend will probably love it. Actually, it is very simple to keep happy him when it comes to treats. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyway, I visited the page and simply used the simple instuctions that had been accompanied by wonderful photographs of the method. It just makes life less difficult. I could imagine that it is a bit of a effort to shoot photographs down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have sticky hands thus i highly appreciate the time and energy she placed in to build this blogpost and recipe easily followed.
With that said I am empowered presenting my own recipe in the same way. Appreciate your the concept.
I was tweaking the original formula to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you that it was a terrific success. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed having a delicacy like this in the middle of a hectic workweek. They ultimately requested more, more and more. So the next occasion I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m gonna double the volume .
This Lentil Soup Recipe is from SunCakeMom.
Rinse the lentils then put them into a pot and fill it up with water to soak. Follow instructions on the packaging for soaking.
Heat the oil in a big pot and then add the diced onion, carrot, celery and salt to it.
Saute the onion, carrot and celery on low heat until the onion gets a light brownish caramelized look. It takes around 15 to 20 minutes.
Add black pepper and the garlic then continue frying them on low heat until the garlic releases it’s nice garlic scent. This will take around 2 to 3 minutes. Mind not to burn the garlic to dark brown as that would ruin the dish.
Add the lentils.
Fill the pot up with water then add tomato, spinach and paprika. If we use any other vegetables or herbs for flavoring this is the time to put them in. Parsley root, parsnip, basil, oregano, chives or thyme are all great options to choose from.
Also this is the time for any kind of meat or bones to be used. Add the Spanish ham to the soup then cook the lentils according to the times marked on the packaging. Brown lentils normally take 40 minutes to one hour.
Roughly 10 minutes before the end of cooking add the chosen vegetables to the soup. Put the lid back on and bring it to boil.
When it starts to boil lower the heat and simmer it for about 10 more minutes or until the vegetables get the desired texture then take it off the heat.
