I tried to do a red lentil dish. In the end, I got a soup which was so great that I decided to tell you about it. It’s better served cold. I tried it both was.
– 100 g red lentils
– 2 tablespoons turmeric
– juice from a lemon
– chia seeds for decoration
– 8 to 9 large cloves garlic, sliced thinly
– 2 table spoons olive oil
Boil the lentils till they are soft. When they are done rinse them and put in a bowl.Keep the water from the lentils. Add the garlic, turmeric, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix everything with a blender. Add more water from lentils, salt and pepper as needed.
When is done leave it in the fridge for 1 or 2 hours. Serve it cold with chia seeds on top and bread crumbles. Enjoy!

This looks delish!
Amazing pic.. Yummy soup
That looks really tasty! What are bread crumbles? Are they really crunchy? I remember something called Backerbsen that we used to have on soups in Germany, a bit like round Grissini.
Looks delicious.Your photos are amazing! What camera do you use?
Thank you. I have Nikon D700
Delicious. Lentils and chickpeas are among my favorite ingredients
You’ve sold me! Not many ingredients, quick & easy! But one question – the photos look like chickpeas – should I use those or lentils? Thanks.
Those are round bread crumbs. Enjoy!
I *did* enjoy! Thanks to you, I made a version yesterday with regular lentils (no adorable bread crumbs). You got me out of a mid-summer food rut.
Thank you. I am happy you liked it
I’ve never had lentils served cold. This sounds interesting, thanks!
Looks wonderful – I love soups all year round and particularly chilled in summer.
