Auntie Loulla’s Greek Lentil Soup Recipe (Faki Soupa)

Lentil soup was the ancient Greeks favourite winter soup and has been made since the Bronze Age in Egypt and India. ‘Faki’ is now considered “poor man's” soup because it is inexpensive to make and very filling, however, it is nutritious and tasty and unlike other pulses, lentils do not need overnight soaking and can be bought easily in packets and tins.
