One onion and a carrot cut into small cubes. In a deep skillet, heat the oil, fry the onion until transparent, add the carrots and fry all together for few minutes until Golden brown onions. Pour 3-4 tbsp of soy sauce

Шаг 2

Add to the pan the tomatoes in their own juice with the juice, and pour the water. Put on a big fire.

Шаг 3

Prepare the meatballs. Forcemeat mix with grated on a small grater half the onions and the breadcrumbs. I use homemade breadcrumbs with herbs. Add 2 tbsp of soy sauce.

Шаг 4

Knead the dough and form small meatballs.

Шаг 5

When the soup comes to a boil, drop meatballs into the pan, reduce the heat to a light "bubbling" and cook the soup for 10-15 minutes.

Шаг 6

Add to soup, the lentils, cook for another 15 minutes. At the end of cooking add thyme leaves. I also add it to soup a little sugar to balance the slight acid from the tomatoes and to emphasize the sweetness of the onions. A half-teaspoon of sugar can completely transform the soup, try it.
