Frequently asked questions:
WHAT TYPE OF LENTILS ARE THE BEST FOR LENTIL SOUP?
In this recipe, I used dried green lentils, but you can use almost any kind of dried lentils; brown lentils, red lentils or yellow lentils.
CAN WE USE CANNED LENTILS TO MAKE LENTIL SOUP?
Yes, you can use canned lentil to make lentil soup. Remember to drain and wash your lentils before adding to the soup. You probably will need less time to cook them, about 15-20 cooking time in total, after boiling. If you are using canned lentils your soup will be mushy, so my recombination is to use dried lentils.
HOW TO STORE LENTIL SOUP?
Cool the soup to room temperature, then place in the fridge, covered, up to 4-5 days.
