Procedure edit

    Finished lentil soup, with potatoes, parsley, and dill added
    Pick over the lentils to remove any debris if needed. Rinse well.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add the onion and carrots. Sauté for a few minutes, until the vegetables have started to soften, then add the garlic.
  3. Add the lentils, bay leaf, and water to the pot. Simmer over low-medium heat for 20–30 minutes until lentils are softened.
  4. Serve hot.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Herbs and/or spices can be added to the sautéing vegetables, such as cumin, thyme, oregano, and/or red pepper flakes.
  • Hot sauce can be added to taste. Freshly-squeezed lemon juice is a nice addition, preferably immediately before serving.
