Good morning my friends and happy Sunday. As I told you some days before, when is cold weather outside, the best option for food is a nice and delicious soup . Thank God we have plenty of soup options in Greece . Let me show you this one
500 gr. lentils
1 onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, finely chopped
2 tbsp. tomato paste
300 gr. crushed or grated tomato
1 tbsp. oregano, dry
2 bay leaves
3 sec. garlic
2 lt hot water
1 mushroom broth in gel form
Feta cheese with oregano
Rinse the lentils in a colander with cold water.
Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat and let it heat up. After it heats up, add the olive oil, the onion, the carrot and sauté for 4-5 minutes.
Add the tomato paste, mix with a wooden spoon and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add the lentils, add a little olive oil, bay leaves, garlic, oregano, crushed tomatoes, hot water, mushroom broth in gel form, cover the pot and cook for 25-30 minutes. For the last 5 minutes, add a little olive oil to boil, the vinegar, season with salt
and pepper and stir.
Serve the lentils hot with feta cheese and bread.
That’s all, easy and fast
Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people
My best wishes from Greece
