Hungarian Red Lentil Soup
- 1 packed cup (160g) diced yellow onion
- 3 medium carrots (154g) cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
- 3 (15g) large garlic cloves minced
- 1 cup (209g) dry red lentils rinsed well with cold water
- 6 tablespoons (90g) tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons (15g) Hungarian sweet paprika
- 1 teaspoon (2g) dry mustard
- 1 ½ teaspoons (9g) fine salt
- ¼ teaspoon (1g) ground black pepper
- 1 cup (240g) canned “lite” coconut milk well shaken
- Add the onion, carrots, garlic, and 1 cup (240g) water to a medium pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 8 minutes, stirring a couple of times during, or until the veggies are tender but not overly so. Remove the pan from the heat and add the lentils, 2 ½ cups (600g) water, tomato paste, paprika, dry mustard, salt and pepper. Stir well and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add the milk and increase the heat to medium-low; cook 5 to 10 minutes or until the lentils are tender yet still firm and the soup thickens some. Stir often and do not overcook, as you don’t want the lentils to become mushy. Taste and add more salt, if desired. Serve immediately.
