Ok. There has not been much food in this blog lately, but now I’m going to share with you an extremely ugly, yet tasty dish.
Lentils. Lentils are a good source of protein, as well as certain minerals and vitamins such as iron, magnesium, potassium, thiamine, folate, zinc and phosphorus. They are also cheap and easy to cook (not very quick, though, at least not when talking about brown lentils.)
The basic recipe for lentil soup is easy. Cook lentils with onion, potato and garlic until everything is soft. The result may be actual soup, normal lentils or some kind of indescribable mash. There is no need to add anything, although the possibilities are endless. Other veggies go well with lentils, and so do certain types of meat, such as sausages or chicken.
But because the NY Times cannot possibly be wrong – I added a can of tuna, as well as some feta cheese. A little bit less water could have been a good idea.
Spices are always good.
And there is more where that came from…
