From 9 months.

The infamous Annabella Karmel came up with a toddler lentils recipe that is very close to our lentils soup. Here we simplify her recipe to accommodate our local ingredients and keep it nutritious and delicious for our babies.

  • 1/2 cup yellow lentils - عدس أصفر
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 1 small onion - بصلة
  • 1 garlic clove (optional) - فص ثوم
  • 1 carrot (grated) - جزرة
  • 1 zucchini (grated) - كوسة
  • 1 cup chicken broth/stock (OR water) - مرقة دجاج
  • 1 pinch ground cumin - كمون
  • 1 tablespoon coriander (finely chopped - OPTIONAL) - كزبرة

Step by step

  1. In a medium pan, heat olive oil for 10 seconds then add minced onions and garlic as well as grated carrots and zucchini. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  2. Add lentils and hot water or broth and bring it to a boil. Cover pan and lower heat and let it simmer for 25 minutes or until lentils and veggies are cooked through. Stir occasionally.
  3. You won't need to use a blender for this dish, it will absorb all the water and have a good consistency on its own. Add cumin and chopped coriander, if using any, and serve warm.
