Easy Lentil Soup
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 browsing on the web yesterday. In need of new, interesting thoughts, inspiring meals that I’ve never tasted before, to delight my loved ones with. Searching for a while but could not find any interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and simple treat simply by luck on Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so delicious on its photo, that called for prompt actions.
It had been not so difficult to imagine how it is made, its taste and just how much boyfriend might want it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to delight the man in terms of desserts. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I went to the blog and then used the step-by-step instuctions that were coupled with nice pictures of the operation. It just makes life faster and easier. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot photos in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may typically have sticky hands therefore i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she placed in to build this post .
With that said I am empowered presenting my own recipes similarly. Appreciate your the thought.
I had been fine tuning the initial recipe create it for the taste of my family. I have to mention it had been an incredible outcome. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed getting a sweet such as this during a lively workweek. They quite simply asked for lots more, many more. So next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the amount .

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.
