We Made A Lentil Soup And Here Is What Happened

Hi Urbangrainers,

One day before the week ends, and it is recipe day!

So today, I decided to make a very traditional Greek soup made of lentils, which is normally eaten during the winter – but it is equally well cold.

Lets see the ingredients for 4 people:

Step 1: Couldn’t be simpler.

Fill a large pan with water and bring it to boil. When it starts boiling add some salt, and then pour the lentils in.

Step 2: Let it boil for a while, and add the chopped tomatoes. In the mean time,  if you haven’t done already, chop the onion into fine pieces and add it to the pan.

Step 3: Add Urbangrains olive oil

Step 4: Add the bay leaves and the whole, peeled garlic at the end. This will give a wonderful, warm and spicy aroma and taste to the lentil soup.

Step 5: Add Urbangrains oregano, salt and pepper to taste, just a few minutes before you remove from heat. The reason you add oregano at the end, is not to allow the food to become bitter.

Note: the whole boiling process should be no more than 30 minutes, max – at the end, lentils should not be mushy or very soft, any way.

Step 6: The best step!

Serve in a deep bowl, and whether you prefer it hot or cold, add chopped, big chunks of Urbangrains feta cheese on top of the soup. Eat while enjoying Urbangrains Organic black Kalamon olives, marinated in a secret …marinade. Enjoy!
