Method

Green Lentil Soup, My Best Standby Dish for Many. Cheap Too :) is a community recipe submitted by AnLi and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Sweat the onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat in a big saucepan ( I use 5 a litre pan for this batch), add the paprika powder and after a couple of minutes the soaked and drained green lentils, diced potato, tomatoes, stock cubes, honey and water. Simmer for about 35 minutes.
  • When ready, season with salt.
  • Serve with wedges of lemon to squeeze into each plate individually. Others might like a dollop of crème fraîche in their plate...
  • Recipe can easily be multiplied for big groups, freezes well and improves (if possible) on reheating. Serve with a good bread and butter, or cheese.
