Why I Love This Recipe

A simple Greek lentil soup with only one direction to follow. Seriously!

Ingredients You'll Need

250g / 8.8 oz. / ½ cup lentils
1L / 4 cups water (750ml / 3½ cups if you're using a pressure cooker)
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tomato, grated (or 2 tbsp canned chopped tomatoes)
3 tbsp olive oil
1½ tbsp vinegar (or more, to taste)
Salt & pepper
1 bay leaf


Optional: sort your lentils to make sure there aren’t any small stones left. Rinse the lentils and let them soak for a couple of hours in lukewarm water before cooking.

Put all the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook for 45mn to 1 hour over medium heat, until the lentils are cooked.

If you use a pressure cooker, the soup will be ready in 20 minutes.

I serve mine with a handful of plum black olives, such as Volos.
