1 medium onion, chopped 1 1/2 cups (200 grams) red split lentils 4 cups water 3 teaspoons vegetable bouillon juice of one lemon
Rinse the lentils through a sifter, and pour into a pot , add the chopped onion(s) water, bouillon cubes and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and slowly simmer the soup for about 25 minutes or until the lentils are mushy and the soup has turned yellow. Squeeze the lemon, add the lemon juice to the soup and taste it if you need more salt, perhaps add a bit of pepper etc. Otherwise it's ready to serve!
I made a variation of this from the back of the lentil package. It called for 1/2 t. cumin and 1/2 t. tumeric and twice the lentils and liquid (I used vegetable stock.) I like a creamier consistecy, so I blended a portion of it in the Vita-Mix. Excellent. I am assuming 1 c. servings.
