Aqui va una de mis recetas favoritas. Es muy sana. Las lentejas son ricas en hierro y fibra y el toque de limon (vitamina C) ayuda a absorber el hierro de las lentejas. Buen provecho!!!!

Here is one of my favorite recipes. It is very healthy. Lentils are rich in iron and fiber and a touch of lemon (vitamin C) helps absorb iron from lentils. Bon appetit!!

Lentil Soup
Makes 6 servings

1 cup lentils
1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
1 large potato, peeled and diced
2 large ripe tomatoes diced
4 cups vegetable broth
3 tbsp olive oil + 2 tbsp extra
1 large onion, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped


1. In a large pot calendar 3 tbsp olive oil and saute the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, cumin, salt, pepper and chili powder.
Add the vegetable broth, lentils and carrot and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.
2. Liquify half the soup (with a stuck blender?). Then mix again with the rest and add the diced potatoes.
Cook for 15 minutes more, until potatoes are tender.
3. Add the lemon juice and cilantro.

When ready to serve, drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil.

Wow! That's great Brian, can I use your translation for my web page? Thank you! It is soooooo good!

All I did was put it through google translate and clean it up a tiny bit. Of course you can put it in your page, it is your recipe no matter what language you communicate it in.

I do want to know whether I got the directions for blending half the soup right. Is that correct? Do you use a blender or stick blender?

I use a blender, and its more of a puree consistency.
This is the recipe in english now: Lentil Soup

yo quiero unas arepas low carb!
