Last night my cousin who lives in Rome made this soup,recipe sounded easy and delicious, I even realized from the comments that many people here do it as well,called “Sahiha” meaning lentils stay as is, not mashed.
Ingredients and method :
# 1 cup brown lentils.
# 1 carrot, celery stick, garlic clove and chili pepper.
# 1 tablespoon tomato paste or big chopped tomato.
#olive oil, salt, pepper and Maggi cube or vegetable stock.
# boil lentils in 4 cups of water till done.
# saute garlic, celery stick, carrot and pepper in olive oil.
# when tender add lentils with water on them.
# leave to simmer till done then remove vegetables.
# add tomato paste, salt, pepper and Maggi cube.
# Serve with a slice of lemon.
