1 cup yellow lentils, washed and drained
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 Tbsp butter or canola oil
1 Tbsp flour
2 cups chicken broth
2-3 cups hot water
½ lemon juice
½ tsp cumin (optional)
1 tsp salt to taste
For top:
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp paprika
Saute the chopped onions in butter/canola oil for 3 minutes or so over medium heat. Then, stir in the garlic and flour. Saute until the flour starts giving a pleasant smell (about 2-3 minutes). Add the washed and drained yellow lentils and continue sautéing for about 3-4 minutes. Finally, stir in the chicken broth and make sure the flour dissolves in the liquid well. Then, add the hot water and salt to taste.
Cook over low heat until the yellow lentils are cooked, for about 20-30 minutes. Then, preferably with an immersion blender, blend the soup until it gets smooth. Adjust the thickness with additional hot water. Stir in the lemon juice and cumin (optional). Cook for another 5 minutes.
If desired, prepare the garnish by heating up the butter and paprika until it gets bubbly. Pour the sizzling butter-paprika garnish over the soup before serving.
Serve the yellow lentil soup hot with lemon wedges and bread.
ENJOY
