  • 350g red lentils
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 potato
  • 7 cups (1,5 L) vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika powder
  • 6 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Bunch of fresh parsley
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a pot, add chopped onion and carrot and cook for about 5 minutes. Then add finely chopped garlic and ground cumin.
  2. In with the tomato paste and, after about 3 minutes, add the red lentils along with the diced potato.
  3. Add your vegetable stock, season with salt and pepper and add bay leaf. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  4. If the lentils are soft after half an hour, blend the soup to a creamy consistency using an immersion blender. Check for seasoning (it usually needs more salt), add lemon juice and stir.
  5. In the meantime, prepare chili oil. Heat the oil in a small saucepan and add chili powder or paprika powder. Let cook for a few minutes and mix well. If you want to use some chili sauce, you can skip this step.
