Mary’s lentil soup

This soup is easy to make and very satisfying to eat. The recipe comes from my mother, who is an expert at making delicious soups. It serves 4 people.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 can of tomatoes
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup of red lentils
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Method

In a pan soften the garlic and chopped onion in the olive oil. Add the cumin and turmeric.  Add the lentils and stir everything together.  Add tomatoes and the stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer the soup until the lentils are soft and cooked (about half an hour). Blend the soup. Add salt and black pepper to taste.
