How to make Mediterranean lentil soup:
Like most soup recipes, you’ll start by sautéing some onions with olive oil in a large deep pot. Then add the red lentils on top.
Next, add the short-grain rice along with the spices you’re using. What spices to include in lentil soup? The traditional crushed lentil soup recipe is only made with cumin, salt, and pepper. You can also add a dash of paprika, cinnamon, and turmeric if you’d like – all of them would work really well with this soup.
The next step is to mix everything together, throw in some carrots cover with water and cook for half an hour until the mixture is all fluffy and well cooked.
The soup is ready to serve as is. You can use an immersion blender to give it a smooth texture. Then, stir in some lemon juice to finish it up with a fresh zing!
