Greek Lentil Soup-Fakes
A delicious yet simple lentil dish is a Greek classic all year round. Tender lentils cooked with onion and served with extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar.
If you have time soak the lentils.
In the meantime sauté onion in 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil until soft.
Place lentils in a pot adding just enough water to cover them well. Bring to a boil and then dump the water.
Place lentils in the pot with about 4 cups fresh water, the onion, garlic, bay leaf and pepper. Add the tomato paste and mix until well blended.
Simmer for about 40 minutes (it maybe more) until soft and thick.
Serve with a spoonful of olive oil and a drizzle of red wine vinegar, add salt as needed. You may accompany with feta cheese or cured fish or olives.
