Lentil soup (Adas)

_DSC1168

Since we are saying goodbye to Summer I thought I would offer this authentic recipe for Adas Lentil soup. This is a very popular soup that can be seen every where in the middle east. This recipe was inspired by my mother in law’s recipe. She adds a touch of rice which I like. This is also eaten many nights during the holy month or Ramadan (fasting)

Ingredients

1 cup of red lentils rinse and drain

1 small onion chopped

1 garlic clove chopped

5 1/2 cups water

1 cube chicken bouillon

1 tsp. salt (estimate)

1 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 cup short grain rice

Directions

In a large sauce pan saute onions and garlic in olive oil. Add lentils, water and all ingredients except rice. Bring to boil, cover and turn down heat so that it is still lightly boiling. Let cook for 1 hour stirring several times during process. Add rice at this time and stir well, let the soup continue simmering for another hour or until done. Soup should be a nice consistency and will be thick but not lumpy.

This soup is eaten with a splash of fresh lemon juice and some Arabic bread.
