DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot or pressure cooker, saute chopped onions in vegetable oil until soft.
  • Rinse dried lentils several times.
  • Add lentils, water, salt and pepper to the pot.
  • Bring to boil and simmer for an hour or more until lentils turn yellow in color and are soft and dissolving in broth.
  • If using a pressure cooker, cook for 15 minutes after pressure has risen. Release pressure before removing lid.
  • Whisk lentils to make a smooth soup, or stir to blend for a more textured soup.
