Turkish cuisine has so much variety, offering home chefs a range of simple, delicious, and satisfying options to choose. Soups are very common and popular in Turkey and Turkish Red Lentil Soup (known as 'Mercimek Çorbası' in Turkish) is the king. Red lentils are preferred as they cook quickly and break down easier than the green or brown lentils, making them faster to cook and easier to blend for a creamy smooth soup texture.
Red lentils (as are all lentils) packed with nutrition including lots of protein, fiber, and vitamins. Keep them on hand for quick and healthy weeknight meal...
