One of the easiest soups you will ever make, guaranteed! We eat it in the winter and literally every other day during Ramadan. I just make it in batches and freeze them.

Lentil Soup

A personal favorite during winter, and Ramadan, you can’t go wrong with this Lentil Soup


  • 1 TBSP Veg Oil
  • 2 Cup Red Lentils
  • 2 Medium Potato's diced finely
  • 4 Carrots shredded
  • 2 Large Onions
  • 1 Liter
  • 1 TBSP Salt
  • 1 TBSP Cumin
  • Croutons/Dill for garnish


  • Add oil to a sauce pan and add onion until translucent
  • Then add the red lentils to the onions for 5 – 10 minutes until it changes color, then add carrots and potatoes. Add 1 liter of water for 30 minutes, then add to food processor and pulse until smooth
  • Add water if the mixture is too thick to thin it down and to return to sauce pan. Add Cumin and Salt and whisk to mix, allowing it to boil for 5 minutes
