This interesting variation makes a great change for your palate. It works effortlessly with onions, garlic and tomatoes in it. The low-fat milk in the soup does not add cholesterol to the diet. The protein in the low-fat milk complements the protein in the lentils, thus making this a nourishing combination.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the peppercorns, onions and garlic and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
