Red Lentil Soup Recipe

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh!

Insha Allah this finds you in the best of health and Iman.



1 cup dried red lentils
1 medium onion, diced
1 TB olive oil
2 chicken (or vegetable) bouillon cubes
2 bay leaves
1 ½ tsp cumin (or use curry powder for a different flavor if you make this every night)
¼ tsp black pepper
3 cups hot water
Fresh lemon and parsley (optional, for garnish)

In a saucepot, heat the oil on medium heat and add the onion; sauté for 5 minutes or until the onion is slightly softened.  Add the lentils, bouillon cubes, bay leaves, cumin, black pepper, and hot water; cover the pot and bring the soup up to a rolling boil, then turn down the heat and let it boil gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Taste the soup for salt and pepper.  Serve garnished with fresh lemon and a sprig of fresh parsley if desired.
