Red Lentil Soup

Healthy lentil soup with seeds, dried garlic and dried rose petals as topping. The lentils lose some of their beautiful red colour when cooked, but the puree is very enjoyable! I love red lentils – I also need red lentils for my Dahl. This time I made a red lentil soup with red lentils, bouillon, carrots and Greek yoghurt. Red lentils provide a lot of nutrients and vitamins. After a meal, they prevent the rapid rise in blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol levels and protect against dangerous diseases.
They also contain a very high percentage of proteins, which are particularly good for our organs and muscles. They also provide a lot of fibre, potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper, phosphorus and iron. A great legume if you want to lose a little weight and eat a healthy diet. The highlight at the end – this recipe takes only 15 minutes.
