Greek Lentil Soup (Faki)
45 mins (prep 5, cooking 40)
15 ingredients
1 servings
This was my mother's recipes for Faki, which has been one of my favorite soups since I was a child. The natural flavor of the lentils comes through nicely, providing a foundational flavor. The carrots and the celery, vegetables normally used to augment other things, shine in this soup; the sweetness of the carrots and the creaminess of the celery provide a strong middle flavor. The red wine vinegar at the end is absolutely essential. That last addition of an acid top note stretches the flavors and really makes this easy, simply, healthy soup a sure hit on a cold winter's night. Give it a try!
