Lentils Soup

40 minutes


6 servings

Lentils are essential food for Burmese households just like chickpeas. We love to make soups and curries with them. We cook different styles of soups and curries with them also.

We mainly use red and yellow Lentils. We use Lentils so widely that we even introduce them to our babies when they start solid food under 12 months old time. But we would cook it regularly to our elders at homes as well. Because Lentils are one of the superfoods for everyone and this should be your go-to food when you are vegan.
