Today I am at home with the kids, so it's a great opportunity to cook with them and also try some new recipes I checked lately in Greek gourmet magazines.
Alia loves lentil soup.So I promised her that before we do anything else we will start with that.
Actually is very nice if your kids like such a food. I remember when I was at the age of 5 I really hated lentil soup...
It's a very simple recipe, I am sure most of you know how to make it, but since we cooked it today let me give you ingredients you need and directions.
500 gr lentils
1 onion cut in tiny pieces
1 garlic glove cut in tiny pieces
1 cup of olive oil
fresh rosemarine (as much as you like)
Put the lentils under water and wash them well (Alia's job)
Place them in a saucepan and cover them with water. Boil them in a medium heat.
Drain them, and put them again in the saucepan, adding hot water.
Add the onion, and garlic and cook in medium heat.
When the lentils are almost cooked (they will be soft) add the olive oil, rosemarine, 1 tb of balsamic vinegar and cook at slow heat until you get a thick mixture.Season with salt and pepper
Serve warm and add as much vinegar as you like!!!
