Lentil Soup


I have two children, Achilles who is 2 and Chaya who is 7 weeks old. Having them so close together there is hardly any time to do much especially cook. So the other day I decided to experiment with soup. Yes soup, its very easy to make and you can make a whole lot and have it for the whole week.

So here's the recipe:

2 cups of lentils
2 onions (diced)
5 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp ground black pepper
2 tsp salt
70gms or so of tomato paste
2 litres of water
2 carrots (diced)


Saute onions, carrots, garlic for 5 minutes. Add black pepper and tomato paste. Transfer this mixture into the pot with the lentils and water. let pressure cook for 30 minutes.
You could soak the lentils overnight if you want. They cook quicker that way.

And there you have it, Lentil Soup! Very delicious! Spiced to perfection!

Everyone who reads this should try it. You can't go wrong.

No more complaining from my husband that there's no food cooked when he gets home from work!!
