Egyptian Yellow Lentil Soup
Servings: 4
Prep time: 20
Total time: 60 minutes

One of the simplest ways to enjoy lentils is in this long-served golden Egyptian Yellow Lentil Soup that represents a delightful fiber-rich meal in a bowl. On a grey, blustery day when your mood may match the weather, the sunny color alone is warming, and the spices complete the job.

Preparation

 

1. In a large saucepan, cover the lentils with 5 cups of stock. Add tomato, potato, carrot, and salt and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, skimming any foam that forms on top.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 2 minutes, then turn the heat to medium-low and cook until golden and caramelized, about 8 minutes. The onions should not be burnt. Stir in the cumin and turmeric, cook 1 minute. Set aside.

3. Remove the lentil mixture from heat and purée using a hand-held immersion blender or in batches in the regular blender. Add to the onions and spices along with the 3 cups stock, if you prefer a thicker soup, add less. Bring soup to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes, or until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, topped with the pita chips and parsley or cilantro.
