1 kg onions
4 tablespoons olive oil
1,5 teaspoon thyme
5 cloves of garlic
2 bay leaves
100 gr red lentils
Start by cutting the onion into rings.
Then put a pan on the fire with a good dash of olive oil. Let the olive warm up and add the onions.
Add the thyme, garlic and pepper and stir until the onion softens and caramelizes, over a medium heat for 35/40 minutes.
Add the bay leaves and the stock and let it boil.
Now add the lentils and let the soup boil on a low heat for about 25 minutes.
Stir occasionally and finally remove the bay leaves from the soup.
