Lentil tomato soup for beginners

Oct 21, 2022 Michał Pelc

Lentil tomato soup is an ideal soup for beginners. It is simple and quick to prepare.

How to prepare lentil soup?

  • Slice the carrots and dice the onion
  • Heat the olive oil in a pot and fry the onion and carrots for a few minutes
  • Add chili and cinnamon and cook for another minute
  • Add the lentils, dill and tomato passata, mix and bring to a boil.
  • Cook covered for 20-25 minutes on low heat.
  • Pull out the dill and blend the soup to a smooth cream.
  • Serve with roasted pumpkin seeds


It is worth rinsing the lentils under running water, otherwise it may foam in the pot or boil over.

Use a pot that is large enough, I chose too small :)

This series of films encourages you to experiment in the kitchen. In this series, I prepare dishes that I have never made myself. I want to show you that cooking is not difficult at all. I choose interesting dishes from cookbooks and prepare them together for the first time. Check out my new series on YouTube. The recipe comes from the book Jadłonomia in Polish by Marta Dymek
