Delicious low FODMAP Turkish lentil soup or mercimek corbasi. A delicious starter or lunch. Healthy, vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free.


  • 150 g (3/4 cup) tomato, in cubes
  • 1 medium potato
  • 150 g (1 1/4 cup) carrots, sliced
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp Turkish pepper puree (or substitute an extra tbsp tomato puree)
  • 180 g (6.3 oz) of canned lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1.5 liter stock (made with low FODMAP stock cubes)
  • Optional: fresh mint to serve
  • Optional: chili flakes (pul biber) to serve
  • Optional: lemon wedges to serve


  • Peel the tomatoes. I do this by making a cross in the back and placing them in a pan of boiled water for a few minutes. Then you can easily peel the skin off.
  • Cut the tomatoes into pieces.
  • Peel the carrots and potato and cut into cubes.
  • Heat a tablespoon of garlic-infused olive oil in a soup pan. Add the tomato, carrot and potato and also paprika, chili powder and salt. Fry for a few minutes on low heat.
  • Rinse the lentils well and drain. Stir together.
  • Add stock, tomato paste and pepper puree. Stir together.
  • Bring the soup to the boil, put the lid on the pan at an angle and let the soup simmer on low heat for 40 minutes.
  • Puree the soup with a stick blender.
  • Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if desired. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes and then turn off the heat.
  • Serve the soup with fresh mint, chilli flakes and lemon wedges for a drizzle of lemon juice over the soup.
