Hi friends,

My recipes are tied to my family and the heart beat of my family is the kitchen. Food brings people together, it connects us and it's an expression of caring, love, of nourishing, and sometimes creativity. We love sharing not only with the family but also with neighbours and friends. This specific recipe is from my dad and by sharing this Portuguese recipe, and these intimate moments, feelings with you and your dear ones, I hope you and your family gets to enjoy some of our flavors and customs. May your beautiful table be filled with delicious good food and also by the people you love and love you in return.  I love sharing delicious recipes and table top inspiration for you and your friends to enjoy, I hope many good meals and memories will be created.

This simple and fast soup is so healthy and it only has a few ingredients! It's made of carrots, lentils, chicken, rice, cilantro, olive oil, onion, garlic and salt, I love simple and delicious food!

 I used lentils (which I soaked overnight) and put that on my pot covering them with water, and a dash of salt and olive oil, then I added organic rainbow carrots (yellow, purple and orange). Add the chicken and then the rice and cilantro last. 

Super easy and super fast equals delicious! 


- 1 cup of lentils (soak overnight).

- 1 package of rainbow carrots, cut into little pieces

- 4 chicken pieces (I used 2 thighs and 2 legs)

- 1 medium onion ( sliced thin)

- 1 cup of rice 

- 1/2 cup of cilantro

- 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

- salt to taste


Fill a large soup pot halfway with water then put all the ingredients together and cook for about 30 minutes on medium heat. Put in the cilantro (optional, and you can use parsley if you prefer instead) in the last 10 minutes of cooking. If you have any questions, please comment below.
