  • 1 red chilli pepper, insides removed, chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • a little sea salt
  • 1 clove of garlic, pressed
  • 1.5 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1.5 tsp. cumin

  • 2 tsp. tomato puree

  • In a bowl, mix the flour and salt, add the butter and rub by hand to form a crumbly mixture. Stir in the chilli. Add the water, and mix quickly to create a soft dough – do not knead. Flatten the dough, cover and leave to chill for approx. 30 mins.
  • Shape: Divide the dough into 8 pieces, sprinkle a little flour on the work surface and roll out into wafer-thin ovals. Place the flat breads on an oven tray lined with baking paper, sprinkle with salt.
  • Bake for approx. 10 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, cool on a cooling rack.
  • Melt the butter. Sauté the onion and garlic then add the spices and continue cooking. Add the carrot, celeriac and tomato puree and continue to sauté for approx. 2 mins. Pour in the stock, add the lentils and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for approx. 30 mins. Season the lentil soup.
  • Plate up the soup and serve with the flat breads.
