Lentil, Bulgur Wheat, Paprika & Mint Soup


Between overtime at work and various other stuff it’s likely to be busy this week, so decided to knock up this tasty lentil soup.  Between this, the biryani rice, and a pack of defrosted mini-naans I should be well sorted dinner-wise for the week ahead….

Original from here:



Lentil, Bulgur Wheat, Paprika & Mint Soup
Half a white onion, chopped finely
One clove garlic, chopped finely
Generous dollop tomato puree
Vegetable stock
Smoked paprika
Half a tablespoon honey
Bulgar wheat
Red lentils


In a wok, saute the onion for a few minutes in oil or butter.

Add the garlic and cook for a minute or so more.

Mix up the hot stock and add the honey, smoked paprika, tomato puree and a little salt. Mix well.

Add a generous couple of handfuls of wheat and lentils to the wok, stir into the onion mix, and then add the stock.

Bring to the boil , then reduce the heat to a simmer.

Partially cover the wok and simmer for 20 mins.

Dribble with olive oil and a little dried mint, then continue to simmer until the lentils and and wheat are tender.  Layer bread in a bowl and pour the soup over, then top with a dollop of yogurt.
