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!

  1. 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.

  2. Oooh, this sounds great. Maybe not for now as it’s mid-winter in New Zealand, but I’ll definitely try it in spring/summer. Thanks so much for this recipe, and thanks also for checking out my blog. I hope you enjoyed it! Andi

  3. Mmm Mmmm This seems postively delightful, warm, and nourishing! I am looking forward to trying your recipe with my no chili curry spice mix, and some other ideas I have. I will be sure and credit you for my source of inspiration! 😉
