If this soup and this song don’t have you dancing and remembering the good old days in the 90s I don’t know what will !

Feeds 3-5 ppl

1.5 cups green lentils (soaked min 1 hour)
1/4 cup medium grain rice (not washed) .
1 large brown onion finely diced
1 cup fresh parsley leaves chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter (paint it yellow )
2 tbsp salt

After lentils have been soaking wash them , add to a medium size pot and add water to cover them well and let them boil away until totally soft .

Using a stick blender wizz them up well.

Slowly add the rice in stirring well and adding water as well to keep it soupy and also the water allows rice to cook well . (Refer to my highlight)

Keep stirring while adding salt also and keep your eye on how thick it’s getting , water is added slowly as needed .

Cook off the onion in a pan with the oil and butter , once it’s a nice caramel colour also add it to soup .

Once rice is cooked your soup is done ✅

Finish off with fresh parsley and enjoy 😉.
