Turkish Red Lentil Soup (sans yogurt) 2 Tbsp olive oil 1 onion, finely diced 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 Tbsp coriander 1 tsp cumin 1 tsp paprika pinch cayenne (or more, if you like it spicy) 1 Tbsp tomato paste 1 tomato, small dice 1 1/2 cups red lentils 1/4 cup white rice 2 carrots, cut in 1/2" dice 6-8 cups water salt and white pepper to taste juice of 1 lemon, plus additional lemon wedges for serving
There is an unmistakable Turkish influence in this soup. Made with the humble red lentil, this soup can even serve as a simple main dish by itself. Rice gives body to the soup and low fat milk tones down the strong flavour of lentils even while making the soup richer and creamier.
