The Arabic lentil soup is a must have for every Ramadan table. It is the perfect starter, very nutritious and rich in fiber. I love all the flavors in there such as cardamon, cumin and coriander. Finish it with the squeeze of lemon and enjoy it hot.


  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp cardamon powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon
  • 4-5 tbsp oil


  1. Chop the onion and saute until slightly golden.
  2. Wash the lentils and add to the onions.
  3. Add about two pints of water and season
  4. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Blend the soup, squeeze half lemon in it and serve with extra lemon wedges
