- ¼ cup mixed lentils
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp bouillon powder
- 1 tablespoon garam masala
- 1-2 cloves garlic
- ¼ cup diced tomato
- 1-2 green onions, sliced
- Optional – lemon wedge to squeeze over soup just before eating, fresh cilantro or parsley
Rinse lentils. Put in small pot with water and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes until lentils are tender (again, this will depend on what kinds of lentils you are using). While lentils are simmering, add garam masala, bouillon powder, and garlic.
While lentils are simmering, dice tomato and green onion. This will be added raw on top of the hot soup.
The day I wrote this up I ate it with some lavash bread that my father had given me. This week I’m eating a similar soup with some delicious tortillas seasoned with green chiles.
