Creamy Red Lentil Soup

Preparation time: 1 hour

Serves: 4

 

Choosing hot soup as a starter in a cold autumn day talks about good taste and common sense. 

Delicious and easy to prepare, soup is a regular dish at home.

Unfortunately it’s not so regular a model in front my camera – after treatment products don’t look appealing and delicious. They lose color and freshness. And in addition, if the light is bad – pictures look terribly whitewashed and blurred.

Anyway I am not giving up. This Sunday everything was on my side – good  weather, nice house at the country side and appropriate sunlight.

In 30 minutes my soup was ready – creamy consistence, nice yellow colour and oriental taste.

 

 

Soak the lentil for 2-3 hours.

Finely chop the onions and the ginger.

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium to low heat. First add the cumin seeds, stir for a minute. Then add the other spices, chopped onions and ginger and saute for a couple of minutes. Add the lentils and mix to coat. Pour 1 ½ cup of water. Cover the pot and simmer until lentil becomes tender. Season with salt according to your taste. Put on a site for 10 minutes and then blend.

Serve with toasted bread and a slice of lemon.

 

Enjoy
