2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large chopped onion

1 carrot, peeled and chopped

1 stalk of celery with leaves, chopped

2 medium tomatoes (chopped)

2 cloves of garlic

½ cup lentils (red or yellow)

6 cups stock (chicken or meat)

Salt and pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

For garnishing:

1 small onion, chopped

Golden croutons

For the salad:

2 medium tomatoes (cubed)

1 medium onion (cubed)

2 garlic cloves

1 tablespoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Salt & pepper

2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Rinse lentils well with water
  2. Heat approximately 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and sauté onions, carrots, celery, tomato and garlic for 5 minutes
  3. Add stock and lentils, bring to boil; reduce heat, simmer from 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done
  4. Add salt, pepper, cumin and coriander when the lentils turn soft
  5. Continue to simmer on a low fire for an additional 10 minutes so the lentils absorb the flavour of the seasoning
  6. Meanwhile, mix all the salad ingredients in the Braun Multiquick until well mixed, but don’t puree
  7. Remove the soup from stove and blend using the Braun Multiquick until it softens
  8. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan
  9. Sauté chopped onions until golden brown
  10. Drain the onions on a paper towel to absorb excess oil

Garnish the soup with the golden onions and serve with croutons and salad.

Bon appetit!
