Black lentil soup



It’s a great starter… I like it solo, with macaroni or with toasts. As decoration, I decided for French cheese. Any other cheese like mild Gouda would taste great as well.

Ingredients (for 4 people):

– One liter of water

– 100g black lentils

– 1 1/2 onion

– 2 small carrots

– 1/2 tsp. salt to taste

– 1/2 jar tomato in vinegar

– 1 big garlic clove

– 4tsp. sour crème

– 100-150g tagliolini or any other macaroni can be substituted with toasted bread for example with Philadelphia white cheese spread and garlic

– French cheese


  1. Boil 1 liter of water.
  2. Soak lentils for half an hour and rinse with water.
  3. Add black lentils, chopped onion and peeled carrots to boiling water.
  4. Add salt and tomatoes; cook for 20 minutes. Then blend all ingredients.
  5. Press 1 garlic clove and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. In the meantime cook macaroni or toast bread.
  7. Add chili powder to make it spicier. Salt and pepper for seasoning if still needed.
  8. Once your soup is done, cool it down for couple of minutes and add 4tsp of sour crème. One teaspoon per bowl.
  9. Decorate with cheese.


Enjoy your meal!
