Add minced garlic salt and pepper. Sauté for another 4-6 minutes. Set aside off heat. Check lentil for tenderness, add spices, vegetables, and simmer on low heat 5 minutes. Turn off heat and squeeze the lemon juice into the soup; stir and serve.

I found the original recipe on the bag of Ziyad Lentils, and modified to my taste and adding more.

Always rinse and check through Lentils.

Dont forget to stir occasionally while the lentils are boiling , this will prevent the botom to over cook.

Add as much spice as you like. I always start off with a small amount especially with strong spices like the ones used in this recipe .

THANKS for reading hope you get a chance to make this and many other soups this winter.
