DIRECTIONS

  • In a large soup pot, saute the onions on medium-low until soft.
  • Add the minced garlic and saute until fragrant, being careful not to brown it.
  • Add the dried lentils, basil and oregano, paprika (to taste) and saute a little longer, until fragrant.
  • Stir in the can of diced tomatoes and add water or chicken stock to cover the beans about 1 or so inches, depending on how thick you want the soup.
  • Add brown sugar, red wine vinegar and carrot, if using.
  • Boil the soup until the lentils have softened to a satisfactory texture. Add water/stock if necessary.
  • Remove approximately 2 cups of soup and, using a handblender or foodprocessor, purify the soup. Add the sour cream to this mixture, stir until smooth and and return to main pot.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
