    Been making a red lentil soup for a couple of decades. Can't go wrong.

    I make 'Italian style' 🇮🇹

    1:3 Ratio so, for every 1 cup of lentils, 3 cups of water.
    For 1 cup - 3x table spoons tomato paste (or 2 tbsp and can of crushed tomato/passata using less water)
    1-2 tbsp olive oil
    1x tsp dried basil/oregano
    1-2 fried diced onions
    2 cloves chopped/pressed garlic
    Salt and pepper to season

    Bring to boil then cook on MED-LOW for 10-15m or until absorbed, stirring every 2-3 mins.

    This dish is an artist's canvas. I add roasted capsicums/peppers, chopped chilis, sharp cheeses (parmesan, pecorino) or even fried bacon strips 🥓 for a heartier protein boost to the final dish.

    In the photo, some of the split lentils seem to be spilt lentils. We need a cleanup on Aisle 5

  • Cheap af
    Great for soups and one pot curries. Rinse well First

    • I boil a kettle full and pre boil mine in a bowl before straining. Gets heaps of the starch out.

        Haven't thought of that.. usually just thow in the pot with lid on, after rinsing and let cook with other stuff. Goes great with red curry paste;P
