Lentil Soup



Gloomy and rainy day in Dubai, I opted for a spicy  lentil soup.

Serves 6


  • 200g of brown lentil
  • 1 small potato
  • 1 carrot
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of caraway powder
  • coriander leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon of harissa (spicy paste from Tunisia)
  • 1 1/2 of liter of water


  1. Wash and rinse the lentil.
  2. Peel the potato and the carrot (wash them).
  3. In a cooking pot add the garlic cloves, the chopped potato, the chopped carrot, the  whole red chili pepper, the caraway powder and the harissa.
  4. Mixed all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon.
  5. Add the brown lentil, the salt and the black pepper.
  6. Pour the water and cook for 30 minutes on medium heat.
  7. When it’s cooked, remove the red chilli pepper from the soup.
  8. Blend all the ingredients together.

Serve this soup  with a few coriander leaves and minced red chili pepper.

Bon Appetit.
