Kuskulu Mercimel Çorbası - Turkish Red Lentil Soup With Couscous

U may think am in cooking up Turkish foods almost everyday, u rnt wrong yep even our sterday's dinner was this Turkish red lentil soup cooked along with couscous, i couldnt stop myself to cook up some beautiful dishes from Turkish cuisine, this soup with red lentils and couscous was really filling, nourishing and very tasty soup when served along with toasted bread slices.

We loved having this warm red lentil soup with couscous for our dinner and we enjoyed having this filling soup along with toasted cream cheese sandwich, both together turned out our dinner prefectly..I found this delicious and hearty soup here and the click itself tempts me a lot to try out,

Turkish Red Lentils Soup With Couscous

1/2cup Couscous
1no Carrot (diced)
1tsp Paprika powder
2tbsp Butter
