Greek Lentil soup (Fakes soupa)
From: Jennifer

I got this one out of one of my recipe books.
I can't remember which one.
I think it was The Enchanted Broccoli Forest (or something like I that.
Pfoo....I can't remember anyway.
All I remember is it was good, very filling and excellent for providing a little heat on a rainy day cold day.).

Serves 6

  • 1 lb. of lentils
  • 1 cup of oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp of concentrated tomato pulp
  • 2-3 gloves of garlic
  • 3 laurel leaves
  • half a small tumbler of vinegar
  • salt, pepper
Fill a pot with plenty of water.
Add the lentils and bring to the boil.
Drain the lentils.
Brown the finely chopped onion in the oil, add the lentils, the garlic, the tomato concentrate dissolved in water, salt, pepper, the laurel leaves, and more water if needed.
Cook the lentils and a little before they are ready put it the vinegar.
