First time when i ate lentil soup it was 5 years ago, in Greece. My husband cook it for me. I knew about lentil, my mom was telling me how good it is, but i never had the chance to try it. People here forgot about it and it's a pity. So, when i first ate it, i fell in love with this soup. I modified it many times, but usual we go back to this simple recipe. Also, i like how fast you can cook it. In less than one hour the food is done. Since i started to cook lentil, i had 3 different kind of lentils.
I liked them all.
For this soup you need:
1/2 pound green lentil
1 medium anion
2-3 garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
4-5 tablespoons olive oil
2-3 teablespoons vinegar
Put the lentil into a pot, add water and bring it to a boil.
Add the anion and the garlic, sliced thin, the bay leaf, salt and the olive oil.
Don't add more than one bay leaf, or the soup will be bitter. Boil the soup until the lentil is soft. Stir in the vinegar and boil it for one more minute.
