Cooking green lentils
Pour them into a pot with 2 liters of water and a cube of vegetable stock. Bring your green lentils to a boil, covered, for about 20 minutes until the lentils are cooked. Salt them to taste.
While the lentils are cooking, finely chop 2 onions (I use 3 because I love it!) And brown them in a skillet over low heat for about 20 minutes until they become soft and they are lightly brown.
Then add two teaspoons of turmeric powder and 40 grams of flour and mix well with the onions.
Once the lentils are cooked and very tender. Add your onions and bring to the boil for 10 minutes. The flour contained in the onion will thicken the soup and give it a velvety side. Give a few turns of the pepper mill.
