Method

  • Peel onions, finely cut one part, the remaining - into rings.

  • Peel garlic, crush in a press or finely cut with a knife.

  • Rinse red lentil for about 3-4 times in a cold water.

  • Heat the pot, pour in olive oil (2 tbsp. per serving) and brown finely chopped onion until tender. Next, add the crushed garlic, cumin and coriander. Brown for a minute, add broth and red lentils. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low. Cook for about 40 minutes.

  • Caramelize onions. Heat the frying pan, add the rest part of olive oil and onion rings. Brown for 5 minutes over moderate heat. Then reduce to low, cover and brown for 20 minutes. Finally, add salt and brown again for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

  • Season the soup with salt and other spices. Add lemon juice, sprinkle with caramelized onions and serve.

Tip

  • How to get lemon juice? Take out the lemon from the fridge, leave it heat up for a few minutes. Then roll the fruit on your cooking board with your hands. This action helps to get more juice. Then slice the lemon crosswise using a sharp knife. Squeeze the lemon with the cutting side up, so the seeds don’t fall into the bowl.

Bon Appetit!
