How to make it

  • Saute the onion, apricots, and garlic in olive oil. Now, add the lentils and chicken stock. Allow the mixture to come to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Mix in the tomatoes, and season with thyme, cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
  • Add in the lemon juice. In a blender, puree 1/2 of the soup, then return it to the pot and serve.

    I love lentil soup! This one seems to be a popular one, from the reviews! I've never made it with apricots before, that is so interesting! Thanks to whoever posted this in the 'I Made It' group!

    This is my new favorite lentil soup. The apricot and cumin give it a very subtle sweet spiciness; just perfect! I made this soup with brown lentils instead of the red ones; also added more broth as it simmered more than 40 minutes waiting for guests to arrive. I will be making it again soon!

    Okay, when my husband found out I only gave it a 4 he said "are you crazy - it was delicious, you're making it again, aren't you?" followed closely by "you have to go and change your rating to 5" Which I found I can't do once I've rated it already...
    So, it's a 5! Thanks for a delicious soup!

    What a great soup!
    Really got me out of my rut, comfortable as it was.
    The pairing of apricot and lentils is very nice, the lemon, thyme and cumin - a great pairing!
    Thanks for a great recipe!
