French Lentil Soup Recipe

Well, Egypt's on the verge of change. Demonstrations are all over the country. I've been bitter and depressed, the violence the people of Egypt are being subjected to is horrific. However here's the Lentil soup I made out of Lentils' leftovers that I had after making Koshary the other day. I don't really like lentils but this was a good and quick soup.

French Lentil Soup:

Adapted from Simple Bites


1 Cup cooked brown lentils
2 Tbs unsalted butter
1 medium onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 Cups Chicken Stock
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 Dry Bay Leaf
Salt and Black pepper to taste

Sour Cream for serving.


1. Place butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until melted.
2.Add onion and carrot, season with salt. Sauté until onion is translucent and carrot is slightly tender, about three minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minutes.
3. Add stock, thyme and bay leaf to the pot, season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
4. Add cooked lentils cover and simmer for another 5 minutes.
5. Adjust seasoning and serve hot with a dollop of sour cream.
