    Shouroba addis~ Lentil Soup

    Serves 6

    A much heavier soup, this is particularly satisfying during the winter months and an ideal dish for Ramadan. Extra spices may be added to give more flavour and it should be served with sliced limes and perhaps croutons.
    1 cup red lentils
    1/4 cup rice
    6 cups water
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 medium onion
    2 garlic cloves
    TO CARNISH:

    1 medium onion sliced
    1/4 cup corn oil
    1/2 cup parsley

    Wash the lentils and rice. Chop onion finely and crush the garlic. Combine all ingredients in a soup pot cind boil gently for 1 to 11/2 hrs. When done, remove from heat, leave to cool slightly then puree in the blender. For garnish: Brown the onion in the oil and add to soup mixture. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the soup and serve immediately.
