Red Lentil Soup


  • 1 cup of red lentil
  • 1 small potato
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable/sunflower/canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3 1/2 cup of hot water
  • Red flare pepper
  • Salt
  • Dry mint


Chop onions and roast them with one tablespoon oil. 

Then add washed lentil and tomato paste and cook about one minute. 

Cut potato in small cubes and add them to the soup together with the boiling water and boil about 20 minutes. 

After 20 minutes put the soup in a strainer and strain it through. You can use food processor as well, but I prefer traditional methods.After you strain all of them, boil it another ten minutes and add salt.

When the soup is ready to serve, to prepare the sauce take a pan and put one tablespoon oil on it. Wait until it gets hot, and add dry mint and red flare pepper and cook just 30 seconds and take it from heat.
Put this sauce on the soup. Your soup is ready. Enjoy!
