Hungarian Lentil Soup and Stew


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 8oz package lentils
  • I large yellow onion
  • 4-8 cloves garlic
  • 2 sliced carrots (optional)
  • 2 cups potatos, cubed into half-inch cubes optional)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup soy yoghurt
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar (optional)


For stew, chop onion into large pieces, for soup, leave
onion whole.

Wash lentils, changing water 3 times.

Place all ingredient except potatos and yoghurt
into a 6 quart pot. For soup, add 2 quartes of water and
during the cooking, add additional water as needed to keep
soup from thickening too much. For stew, use the same, but
only add enough additional water during cooking to create a
thick product.

Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, adding the
potatoes (if used) about 10 minutes after reducing heat,
cook until lentils are soft and have burst. (Time varies
based on type of lentils used – if you use grey lentis,
this may take over an hour – add the potatoes 20 minutes
before the hour is up! Red and Orange and Yellow lentils
are usually done in half an hour.) If making soup, remove
and discard onion.

Before serving, stir in yoghurt, and add a
tablespoon of cider vinegar (optional).

Made without the carrots and potatoes, the stew version is
terrific with fried potatoes and sauted squash!

Serves: 4-6

Preparation time: 1-1/2 hours
