Healthy Lentil and Vermicelli Soup

This soup is so easy to make and very healthy.  You only need a few ingredients too.

Lentils have protein and so if you are a vegan or a vegetarian, this is a perfect meal and very filling.

  • 3/4 liter of water
  • 1/3 cup of split red lentils
  • 1 small chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup vermicelli 
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 bouillon (vegetarians use vegetarian bouillon)

  1. In a heavy bottom pan bring the water to boil.  Add in the lentils, onion, bouillon cube and seasoning.  
  2. Cook the lentils for 15 minutes until thick.  Now add in the vermicelli (tiny spagetti like macaroni cut into tiny pieces).  Finish cooking.
  3.  Check for seasoning and enjoy.

Note:  1 bag of lentils will make 20 meals or so.   You need only a little to enjoy this. In Jordan we call this poor man's meat.
