This Tlavhe Red Lentil Soup recipe is healthy, easy to make traditional “Suryoyo” lentil soup with a touch of lemon and spiciness that brings out the subtle flavors of the Middle East.
Now that the cold weather season is heading our way, it’s time to start thinking soup. I’m not shy to admit that my mom made one of the best chicken noodle recipes I have ever tasted. It’s a big hit around my house pretty much any time of the year. However, one cannot live on chicken noodle soup alone. That’s when I reach for a different recipe and Tlavhe Red Lentil Soup is at the top of my list of new favorites.
Tlahve is a traditional “Siryoyo” soup enjoyed by the Assyrian culture for many generations. The thing I love most about this recipe is the simple, healthy ingredients that go into making this soup uniquely delicious. Even the homemade red pepper paste that gives this soup a subtle kick of heat is packed with nutrition and simple to make. This recipe was given to me by my adorable friend, Suheyla, who I am excited to feature her in my upcoming cookbook, along with many of her delicious recipes. So this fall as the temperature begins to drop, give this recipe a try and enjoy a little taste of the Assyrian culture.
