How to Make Egyptian Lentil Soup


  • 1Take your chopped onions and over low heat let them sweat out for about 30min
  • 2After 30min, put your chicken stock, garlic, potatoes, and lentils into the pot and let it come to a boil and drop the heat.
  • 3Salt & Pepper your stew meat and dredge in flour. In a bit of oil brown your lamb and then toss that in your pot.
  • 4combine your cumin, turmeric and salt(1tsp) and toast in a pan with a tablespoon of oil. When it gives off a nice aroma and not scorching, stir it into your soup mix.
  • 5Cover and let it simmer for about an hour. I like to use my immersion hand blender and smooth out the soup but you don't have to. I let this cook on low for 4 hours.
