    UmmBinat's Note:

    A tasty soup common to the Arabian Gulf. I prefer to use dried black loomi over the lighter Iraqi/Iranian sold variety as I find they impart a stronger flavouring. This recipe has been modified over time to how we enjoy it most. The original recipe being from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    bowls

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a frying pan, heat butter or olive oil etc. and add the finely chopped onion. Fry gently until transparent, do not brown. Stir in garlic and spices (not sea salt), cook a few seconds, then add chopped fresh tomatoes.
    2. 2
      Pick over lentils, place in a sieve and rinse under cold running water. Put into a large pot and add 6 cups water. Bring to the boil, skimming off the scum.
    3. 3
      Once the lentils and water have come to the boil, add the onion mixture along with the dried black limes, each pierced twice with a skewer or a fork (Do not use a knife as I did that before and the loomis broke in half with the simmering and the soup was a pretty strong loomi flavour), also add the chopped, half cooked potato in now.
    4. 4
      Return to the boil and boil gently, uncovered, for 40 minutes. [This seems long for split red lentils - I think you could get by with less time] Add sea salt to taste, and a little more water if soup looks too thick. Simmer gently for a further 25-30 minutes, uncovered, until the lentils and potato are tender. Stiring occasionally.
    5. 5
      Serve hot in deep bowls with lemon wedges on the side to squeeze on to individual portions. Serve with khoubiz (flat bread), salad, and pickles for a lovely light Arabian meal.
    6. 6
      Enjoy!

      Thank you UmmBinat for taking the time to type in this recipe when I asked you to share your favorite lentil soup. I enjoyed the tomatoes, potatoes and overall flavor of this so much! The only change I made was to use half the amount of butter. I bought the baharat, red lentils and dried black limes at efooddepot.com. Delicious!
