lentils soup for dinner

it has been a while since we last cooked together.

i think we should make lentil soup for dinner tonight. 

say hello to the ingredients.

now boil some water in a pot. add the lentils. and cook until they turn yellowish.

while the lentils are cooking, chop some onions and garlic.

heat some butter in another pot, a bigger one. add the onions, garlic, and spices (ground paprika, chili, cinnamon, curry, white pepper) and salt if you like. stir.

when it starts smelling really good in the kitchen, stir in the crushed tomatoes. i like to add some fresh tomatoes so that the soup gets a different mouthfeel or texture. i simply break them apart with my hands. it looks more natural that way.

then stir in the lentils, they should be cooked by now, and add the haricot vert. as much haricot vert as you like.

cover the pot with a lid. cook for about twenty or so minutes.


serve with fresh bread. and a slice of lemon if you like.


yummy? :)
