This soup is a traditional Turkish soup that is a staple of most restaurants and meals. It is very easy to make and requires no skill whatsoever. This version is more healthy and heartier than the restaurant version which excludes the carrots and tomato sauce. It's very tasty and is often served with flakes of dried red pepper to add a bit of spice. Lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil also greatly improve the taste.

Step 1: Ingredients

2 cups red lentils

6 cups water

1 onion

1-2 cloves garlic

2 carrots

1 tablespoon tomato paste or more if using tomato sauce or fresh tomatoes

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt
