This foam gives the soup a grayish color and makes it harder to digest. • To make the meyane (roux), melt the butter in a pan and add the flour. • Cook for a couple of minutes until it smells like roasted nuts and becomes brown. • Pour in the chicken stock into the pan and whisk constantly. • Add the mixture to the soup and season with the salt. • Lastly, blend the soup with an immersion blender till the texture becomes creamy and smooth. • Your velvety lentil soup is ready, and it is such a good base that you can top with many things and turn the soup into an incredible meal. • For the classical one, top with red pepper flakes and squeeze some lemon. In Cyprus, it is common -and delicious- to add black olives to soup and adding croutons is always a good idea. You can always sprinkle some roasted kadayif instead of croutons. If you want your soup as a main course, top with some meatballs, red beans, and coriander. For a lighter version, salad, croutons, and some sesame seeds would be great! Finally, Bahar’s favorite – yogurt, black pepper, red pepper, olives and parsley.
