My son Benji spent a few months in Greece and Turkey as part of his college study program. He came home a huge fan of the cuisines of those countries and especially of lentil soup. I made the following recipe which he really enjoyed. I’ve been making lots of it for myself – a bowl of this soup makes a great dinner for me when I get home late from work.
for the soup:
- half of one very large onion, diced
- about 3 carrots, organic if possible, cut lengthwise and then sliced very thinly
- about 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 28 oz. can peeled plum tomatoes, chopped fine -organic if possible (reserve the juice)
- 1 small can tomato paste, organic preferably
- 1/2 cup olive oil, extra virgin or light
- 2 1/2 quarts of water
- 1 1 lb. bag of brown green lentils (I’ve used Goya and Stop and Shop brand)
- kosher salt and black pepper to taste (about 1 tablespoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper to start)
Rinse well the lentils in collander. Put into a medium-large pot. Cover with cold water. Cover, and bring to a boil over high flame. When water is boiling, take off lid, and boil over medium flame for about 6-7 minutes. Drain in collander (do not rinse lentils with water).
At the same time you are starting the process bringing lentils in the pot with the water, get your soup pot going. In large pot saute onions, garlic, and carrots in olive oil (sprinkle with salt and pepper), till soft (I cover the pot to expedite). Then, pour the drained lentils from the collander into the pot. Add the chopped tomatoes, the tomato paste, and the water. Add the reserved juice from the tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Cover, lower flame – soup should be simmering, adding more salt and pepper as necessary. Cook about an hour. I freeze the leftovers in quart containers.Sildenafil Buyers Uk, Cheap Sildenafil Online.
