How to make it

  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan and saute the onions over low heat until they are golden--about 15 minutes.
  • Stir in the paprika, then the lentils and bulgur to coat them in the butter.
  • Add the tomato paste, stock, and hot pepper, bring to a boil, and cook until soft and creamy--about an hour.
  • When ready to serve, crumble the mint between your palms into the soup.
  • Stir and remove the soup from the heat. Let rest for 10 minutes, then ladle into bowls, serving each with a lemon wedge and a sprinkling of mint leaves (if available) or crushed dried mint.
