L for Linsen Suppe

14 Apr

Linsen Suppe (a) Lentil Soup has been one of the most consumed item in the Turkish Restaurant, for me personally, in the last weeks or months.

As the name suggests, it is just made out of Lentil cooked & mashed into a soup.  Something that we all can make at home.  The variety of Lentil that Turkish restaurants use is different from our Thoor Dhal that we would use at home.  And yes, that does impart a different taste too.

Usually this soup is served with breads and good enough to be a full meal.


In German cuisine also they make Linsen Suppe but mostly it is also with meat.  So it is better to clarify in the restaurant if the soup is only with Lentils & is vegetarian.

Recently, had the Linsensuppe in an Indian Restaurant and that was made out of our own Thoor Dhal 🙂   At the outset, it is like Dhal water turned into a soup…at gross that is what it is…but somehow gets tasty when it is thickened and mashed.  Try it at home, if you fancy tasting one 🙂

Since I lost the pictures I clicked, I have just embedded one from the internet.  The restaurants serves more bread than is shown here in the picture 🙂
