Lebanese Lentil Soup

Lebanese-Style Lentil Soup with Swiss Chard and Lemon



  1. In a large pot, add lentils and water and place on medium heat to boil.
  2. In a pan, sauté onions until pink, about 5 minutes. Add chopped Swiss chard and sauté together until chard is wilted, 2-3 minutes.
  3. After lentils have cooked about 8 minutes, add onion chard mixture, along with diced potatoes and zucchini to the boiling water.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and cook until the potatoes and lentils are completely cooked, about 12 minutes.
  6. Add the chopped cilantro. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes.
  7. Add lemon juice and cumin before serving.
