I first tasted lentils in Chile. Since then I'm always trying new recipes. The quickest and easiest recipe to make, with a minimum of ingredients that are always on hand. Useful for pregnant women and those who need to follow a low-cholesterol diet.

How to cook spicy lentil soup step by step with photos

Rinse lentils and soak for half an hour. Peel and dice a fresh tomato. Finely chop the garlic.

Pour oil (any kind) in a heavy bottomed pot and heat over medium heat. Add minced garlic, cook for 10 seconds, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

Add cumin seeds and paprika to the oil and garlic. If you wish, you can add hot pepper.

Add diced tomatoes to the spicy mixture. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

Rinse previously soaked lentils, drain the water, add them to the pan with the tomatoes. Simmer for about 3 minutes.

Add cold water. Bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until the lentils are cooked through, covered or not, depending on whether you like your soup thinner or thicker. Do not salt!

At the end of cooking, season with salt and add chopped parsley to taste. I like a bit more. Stir well. Dish is ready!
