Delicious Tomato Lentils Soup Recipe for Beginners

Delicious Tomato Soup with Lentils Recipe
Summary: A lentils recipe that was in my log book for a while. Decided that it should be put on the net along with my other recipes. This recipe has a beautiful green-brown marble color, a slightly spicy taste and holds its shape well.


The green-brown lentils in this soup hold their shape well even after prolonged processing and retain tangible peppery notes on the palate. Red, on the contrary, is boiled almost completely, creating a delicate creamy base. The result is a hearty thick soup with a pleasant heterogeneous consistency – and it turns out literally by itself.

Yields: 2 Servings



  • 150 grams red lentils
  • 200 grams green-brown lentils
  • 400 grams canned tomatoes in pieces
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 head onion
  • 1 piece carrot
  • 20 milliliters olive oil

  • to taste sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron
  • to taste dried basil
  • to taste dried oregano
  • to taste dried tarragon


Step 1

Mix both types of lentils, cover with water and put on fire. As soon as the water boils, extinguish the heat to a minimum, cover the pan with a lid and leave for twenty to thirty minutes. During this time, red lentils will boil a little more strongly than green – green should remain slightly hard.
