Chorbet elades recipe — Coral lentil soup

Chorbet elades recipe — Coral lentil soup

A bit like we do for fattoush salad, we like to sprinkle this simple soup with crispy pita chips when serving.

1.25 liters (5 cups) water
190 g (1 cup) red lentils
¼ tsp. teaspoon of salt
1 onion, diced
80 ml (1/3 cup) olive oil, plus a little more for frying
1 fresh pita bread, cut into pieces
Ground cumin
Aleppo pepper

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the water, red lentils and salt to a boil. Boil 2 minutes. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for 40 to 50 minutes or until a thick soup forms. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion in olive oil for about 10 minutes, or until caramelized. Pour the onion and its oil into the pan. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, fry the pita pieces in olive oil until crispy. Divide the soup into bowls. Top with fried pita pieces and sprinkle with cumin and Aleppo pepper.
