Lentil Soup: Two by Two Soup



The base for this recipe was handed from my great grandma, to grandma, to my mom, to me. I tweaked it a little (a lot, :-P) to give it my own flavor. I LOVE Middle Eastern food and this soup definitely reflects I think. Hope you enjoy!!

2 cup shredded carrot
2 sliced onions (any way or size you like)
2 tbsp thyme
2 cup lentils
2 boxes chicken broth (4 cups each) (can sub vege broth)
2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz each)
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp corriander
2 tsp Gulf Spice Mix (mine is from Saudi, but this recipe tastes similar)
2 tsp paprika
salt & pepper to taste

1. saute carrots and onion in soup pot with a little oil (for less fat, use a little broth) until they are soft
2. add the rest of the ingredients, boil
3. cover and let simmer until the soup looks a bit thick and all of the lentils are cooked
4. blend some or all of the soup to give a nice thick consistancy
5. enjoy! (we like to have it with cornbread, but flatbread is nice too :-) )
