Lentil soup or lentil stew as it is also often called, is a beloved soup that goes back in history at least to Neolithic times.
It is even mentioned in the Bible, called “a mess of pottage”, as the soup that made Esau want to give up his birthright (it must have been a great soup..!)
Lentil soup is nutritious, and is a good source of protein for vegetarians, dietary fiber, iron and potassium.
If the lentils are of good quality, it is an easy and quick dish to make. Make sure to pick the lentils for little stones- not fun to chew on! You can freeze the leftovers.
The lentils are ready when they are soft and the liquid has been reduced to a thicker consistency. You might need to add some water during the cooking.
When the lentil soup is done, remove the onion and the bay leaves. I like to leave the garlic in the soup- but that’s optional! Serve with crusty bread and a Greek salad for the ultimate Greek “comfort food” – directly from Mama Maria’s kitchen!
