Greek Lentil Soup (Faki) image

This was my mother's recipes for Faki, which has been one of my favorite soups since I was a child. The natural flavor of the lentils comes through nicely, providing a foundational flavor. The carrots and the celery, vegetables normally used to augment other things, shine in this soup; the sweetness of the carrots and the creaminess of the celery provide a strong middle flavor. The red wine vinegar at the end is absolutely essential. That last addition of an acid top note stretches the flavors and really makes this easy, simply, healthy soup a sure hit on a cold winter's night. Give it a try!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes) image

Fakes (pronounced 'Fah-kehs') is a staple in the Greek kitchen, and an especially filling meal. It is traditionally served with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of vinegar. Though the vinegar is of course optional, try it. It lifts the lentils and adds another dimension of flavor!

  • To prepare this Greek lentil soup recipe, start by washing the lentils thoroughly and let them soak in water for about 2 hours. If you like, you can skip this process by adding them into a deep pan along with some water and place over high heat. As soon as they come to the boil, drain them into a colander.
  • Place a pan over medium-low heat and add the lentils, the water (warmed), the chopped onions, the chopped garlic and the bay leaves. Simmer with the lid on for about 25 minutes.
  • Pour in the olive oil and the red wine vinegar, and season well with salt and pepper. If you prefer your Greek lentil soup to be ‘reddened’, then add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste.
  • Boil the lentil soup for another 15 minutes, until it thickens and check out if they are done; keep in my mind that different kinds of lentils cook at different times.
