How to make it

  • Bring the water or stock to a boil.
  • Add the cumin, salt and red lentils. Bring back to a boil and partially cover. If there is foam, carefully scoop it out with a ladle and discard.
  • Simmer until the lentils are mushy.
  • Use an immersion blender, a food processor or a spoon and sieve to blend the soup to a creamy consistency.
  • In a small frying pan, heat the oil and add the paprika and thyme just until sizzling and add to the soup. Stir until the oil mixture is blended into the soup.
  • Check for seasoning, adjust salt.
  • Add a slice of lemon and a few parsley leaves to each serving.

    This really sounds good. I have some red lentils in the cupboard I just bought to make another soup recipe, but I think I'll make this instead. Great post! Thanks!
