Syrian Style Red Lentil Soup

This is a perfect soup for the cold and rainy days. I serve it with lemon juice and I sometimes cook it with carrots and potato instead of the rice and it gives it a whole another taste. My friend added some chicken to it for the kids.


One Cup of Red Lentils

Half Cup of Rice

Diced Onion

Cooking Oil



How to Prepare:

Heat a tablespoon of cooking oil in a large pot.
Add the diced onion and stir until soft.
Add the Red Lentils and the rice and mix.
Add water to the pot until it covers the rice and lentils.
Cover the pot and keep it on a medium flame until the water begins to dry up.
Add 6 cups of hot water to the pot and stir.
Add salt to the pot and stir.
Cook for 25 minutes.
