Green Lentil Soup

  • 1½ cup Green Lentils 
  • ½ cup Tahini 
  • 6 Garlic Cloves 
  • ½ cup Olive Oil 
  • ½ tsp Cumin 
  • Water 
  • Salt, as per taste 
  • Pepper, as per taste 
  • Preheat the oven to a temperature of 350 degrees. 
  • Peel the garlic cloves and keep them in an oven-safe pan, along with few drops of olive oil. Add salt and water to the cloves. 
  • Let the garlic roast for around half an hour, or until it is brown in color. 
  • Boil some water on the stove. Once it starts boiling, add salt to it. Now add the lentils and cook for 15 minutes. 
  • Once the lentils are properly cooked, drain out the water and rinse them in cold water. 
  • Keep the lentils in the refrigerator for about half an hour. 
  • After half an hour, put the lentils in the food processor and pulse for a minute or two. 
  • Now add other ingredients, like tahini, roasted garlic, cumin, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. 
  • Pulse the food processor again, so that all the ingredients mix well. Make sure that the texture of the lentil is smooth. Serve with your New Year feast.
