Red lentils soup

What’s better than a steaming hot homemade red lentils soup, with my homemade sourdough bread croutons in a cold wet day?! I make mine in this way: stir fry chopped onions & carrots slowly, in two tbs of olive oil til tender, then add a chopped garlic clove and go on further 2 minutes. Then add chopped tomatoes and let it get to simmer, then blend it all. After blending, add the cleaned red lentils, hot water and a vegetable stock cube (I prefer the organic ones with NO glutamate inside). Let it simmering gently til the lentils are all soft and creamy. I added some escarole at this point, but is up to you, whether you like it or not. Season with Italian style dry herbs and salt. Pour in bowls and add the sourdough bread croutons! Enjoy! X
