Traditional Turkish Mercimek Corbasi.

Recipe Ingredients for Mercimek Corba

1 medium potato, peeled
2 cups
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 onion, grated
360 g Hunt's Tomato Sauce
4 cups water

Recipe Directions for Mercimek Corba

  1. Boil, peal, and puree potato.

  2. Boil lentils in 4 cups water until mushy, add in potato.

  3. Remove chunkier parts of the soup (a drainer works well), but make sure to keep everything else.

  4. Add in VERY finely grated onion into a pan of heat olive oil and allow to sizzle. Then, add in tomato sauce and allow to absorb until sauteed.

  5. Add potato and lentil mixture into sauce mixture, cook until it's a thick soup.

  6. If preferred, sauce and tomato sauce can be kept out of the recipe. This soup is quite thick and can be thinned, but that's not the way I like it. :)
