Delicious Turkish-style lentil soup. Delicious Turkish-style lentil soup.
Number of Servings: 4


    1 cup red lentils
    2 tbsp canola oil
    2 or more cups water
    2 tbsp white flour
    1 tsp salt
    4 lemon wedges


Wash lentils in water, then put them in a pot with 2 cups of water. Cook them slowly until they are soft.
Don't close the lid of pot, it will boil over.
If water doesn't look enough to cook lentils, you can always add some more.
Pour lentils in a blender, and blend well.
In the same pot, pour canola oil and add white flour, then cook the flour by whisking until it becomes light brown, but don't burn it.
Then pour the lentils inside the pot, and adjust the consistency with some hot water. (It is good when it is thick).
Season with salt, and serve with lemon wedges.

  • Incredible!
    This is a basic lentil soup that I think tastes great on a cold day and can be made very quickly. My Turkish friend makes it with red pepper paste and red and black pepper. - 12/31/12

  • I like the taste of lentils by themselves (no spices) and would probably like this recipe. I'm going to walk to the market in a few minutes to buy lentils (used the last 2 days ago) & will post how I feel about this soup. Won't be using flour or lemons. - 9/2/08
