POTATO & LENTIL SOUP


This is an easy to make, and really yummy potato and lentil soup <3

For about four servings:
2 tablespoons of olive oil 
1 clove of garlic 
1 onion 
4 potatoes 
2-3 dl / 1 cup of red or green lentils 
3 pinches of thyme 
1 liter / 4 cups of water 
Your preference of vegetable stock (optional) 
about 0.5 tsp salt 
about 3 pinches of white or black pepper

Peel and chop up the onion and garlic.
Peel the potatoes and chop them into cubes.
Fry the onion and garlic in the oil in a saucepan.
Add the potatoes and lentils. Stir and fry for a minute.
Add the thyme and stir.
Add water and stock. (You can boil up the water in advance to speed things up)
Boil red lentil soup for 20 minutes, and green lentil soup for 40 minutes. If the soup is too thick just add a bit more water.  Season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
