DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrot, and cook until softened (a few minutes). Add the garlic, then, in a minute add the tomatoes and stock.
  • Simmer for about 20 minutes, season, and let it cool.
  • Puree the soup, then strain back into the pot. This removes tomato skins and most seeds.
  • Add the lentils and return to a low simmer.
  • Taste a lentil in about 15 minutes to see if it’s tender. If not, continue cooking, but don’t let them get mushy.
  • Add the sumac and parsley. Taste for seasoning and add lemon juice if you like.
