Lentil soup calms digestion and helps digest hard foods. Lentils have been used as food since ancient times. The lentils were favored by the Romans. The Greek philosophers recommend them as the basis for good health. Lentils have been used as food for thousands of years. Egyptian Lentil Soup is a wonderful example of a tasty and healthy meal.

In the winter months, when it’s still very chilly outside, it’s not easy to get by on healthy food. During this period, the kitchen becomes a place where you can warm up and it also warms the soul. With old recipes from our childhood, such as our oriental lentil soup, you can provide your body with long-chain fatty acids that support our body’s protection against the cold.

Making this lentil soup is so quick and easy (it’s ready in less than 30 minutes) that it’s become one of my favorite dinners, especially during the and winter months when we really need something to warm up!

Lentils & Ingredients

I love lentils and they have been a staple of my diet for years. Lentils are low in calories and high in nutrients, they’re a great source of protein, and their nutty and savory flavor makes them perfect for soups.

Two essential ingredients in this soup are ground cumin and black pepper. Cumin, with its earthy, spicy flavor, adds depth to the soup. Although it’s a bit of a hassle, grind your cumin at home. You get a much more intense flavor from the seeds. Worth it! Black pepper, with its antioxidant and antibacterial properties, gives the soup a little spiciness.

I also like to add some turmeric to give the soup that extra color. Turmeric has a mild taste, slightly bitter and peppery. Turmeric is packed with superpowers like the incredible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that help the liver, lower cholesterol and aid in digestion.

Once the soup is ready and served, add the tomato passata, minty yogurt, and onion and hot pepper mixture. Everyone can then stir the topping under the lentils themselves for a really delicious and refreshing taste.
