When I first saw the recipe for this Turkish red lentil soup, I wasn’t convinced it was going to be very tasty but I was WRONG! I’m ecstatically happy to admit that I was wrong because this is a wonderful soup that tastes deliciously of tomatoes and lemons and I am so happy to have found it.
This soup is extremely easy to make as well, it’s basically throw everything into a pot on the stove and let it cook for an hour, then blend it. It’s lovely and warming on cold nights, the lentils make it a bit thicker than tomato soup and I love that you can add more or less stock to make it the consistency that you want. You can also add more or less lemon juice to suit your tastes.
If you’re after a new and different soup this winter, then this is the soup for you to try. If you’re trying to save money, this soup is very economical at approx $3.50 for 8 serves. It freezes well so you’ll be able to put the leftovers into the freezer for lunches or even another dinner.
