Turkish Red Lentil Soup

30 min


10 ingredients or less

One-bowl / one-pot


This protein-packed soup requires little supervision, takes only a few minutes to prep, and simmers away on the stove by itself until it's ready to be enjoyed! We aways like to make a huge pot, and store batches in the freezer to enjoy later on.

  1. To a large pot on medium-high heat, add the oil. When hot, sauté the onions until lightly brown in about 3 - 4 minutes.

  3. Taste test, add more salt and pepper to taste, and add more water depending on how you like the consistency of your soup. Garnish, and enjoy!
