Kiymet's Red Lentil Soup

This is another recipe from my work colleague (check also out her Börek and Poğaça recipe). It's a very quick and easy recipe and we used a few spare minutes at work to prepare it for lunch. It tasted delicious and made for a good team lunch.


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 1 onion - diced
  • 1 potato - diced
  • 1 carrot - diced
  • 1 tablespoon paprika paste
  • 1 1/2 l vegetable broth
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon curry
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs (e.g. mint, rosemary, parsely, thyme)
  • 1 lemon
  • crusty bread


  1. Heat the oil. Add the red lentils, onion, potato, carrot and paprika paste and fry for about 5 minutes. Keep stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper.
  2. Fill with the vegetable broth (or water and 1 tabelspoon ground vegetable broth seasoning). Boil with closed lid for about 15 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining spices. Squeeze the lemon over the soup and serve with the bread.
