Recipe for a wet day

It's been a wet weekend. I'm not complaining, the trees need the drink. It also gave me a valid excuse to make one of my favourite autumn meals: lentil soup and homemade steam bread. I love lentils! They are a great source of protein, they are high in fibre and are generally kind to my digestive system.

My favourite lentil recipe is dahl. It makes for a creamy and thick soup. On this occassion we had it with warm garlic bread. I hope yur mouth is watering because this is one of those delicious recipes.

 

Ingredients:

1. Three cups of lentils

2. Half an large onion or one small one

3. Stock

4. two table spoons cooking oil

5. Salt

6. Masala/curry powder

7. Water

8. Green, red and (or) pepper

 

Preparation

1. Pick and wash your lentils.

2. I prefer to presoak my lentils to soften them and cut down on cooking time.

3. Slow cook the lentils for about an two a half hours or until soft. For more flavour you can add stock while boiling the lentils.

4. Brown onions in separate pan/pot.

5. Add your pepper

6. Add masala and curry powder.

7. Let it simmer and then add your pre-boiled, preferably creamy, lentils.

8. Stir and let the ingredients simmer.

I'm a more of a herbs than spices person but feel free to add your favourite flavours to the soup.

9. Warm your store-bought garlic bread and serve steaming.
