Lentejas

or Lentil Soup

This soup it’s one of my favorites soup of all time, maybe you can find the Canned ones on your supermarket and those are good but nothing compared to this version, very homey and just delicious!
My mom is making this dish constantly because my baby nephew loves this too! he is 11 months old! 🙂
I really recommend you giving this a try!
Now with the braces I had this for lunch on friday and saturday. But now I can eat better! I’m getting used to them and eating more solid things, but I still tell my Mom I want to have soup! haha
I hope it becomes a favorite in your house like it is in ours!

Ingredients:
2 Cups of lentils
1 liters of water
2 garlic cloves
half onion
3 pieces of bacon (or more if you’re a bacon fan)
1 teaspoon salt
2 carrots
1/2 or 1 celery stick
1 big potato
1 teaspoon of chicken soup powder
1 210g tomato puree

Preparation:
On a saucepan place the water, lentils, garlic cloves, bacon, onion and salt on a medium heat for about 1 hour.

Cut the Carrots,celery and potato on cubes.

Now add the chicken soup powder, the carrots,celery,potato and the tomato puree and wait until the vegetables are cooked. for about 20-25 minutes.

And there you go, now you have a Lentil soup ready to enjoy!!!!!!
