Algerian Lentil Soup (Chorba Adas)
40 mins (prep 5, cooking 35)
12 ingredients
3-4 servings
After eating stodgy comfort food I'm craving lighter and healthier meals. Soup is the perfect choice, easy after work meals packed with veg and pulses and still warming during a cold January in London. I cook two types of lentil soup, the smooth Egyptian red lentil soup and this Algerian version using green lentils which is more brothy. Both soups are cut with the acidic lemon and coriander to serve.
