1. To prepare this Greek lentil soup recipe, start by washing the lentils thoroughly and let them soak in water for about 2 hours. If you like, you can skip this process by adding them into a deep pan along with some water and place over high heat. As soon as they come to the boil, drain them into a colander.
2. Place a pan over medium-low heat and add the lentils, the water (warmed), the chopped onions, the chopped garlic and the bay leaves. Simmer with the lid on for about 25 minutes.
3. Pour in the olive oil and the red wine vinegar, and season well with salt and pepper. If you prefer your Greek lentil soup to be ‘reddened’, then add 1 tablespoon of tomato paste.
4. Boil the lentil soup for another 15 minutes, until it thickens and check out if they are done; keep in my mind that different kinds of lentils cook at different times.

1. The very first step in this recipe is to do what I call “defunking” the eggplant. Eggplant is a naturally bitter food. So to avoid this, we have to do a small amount of additional prep to remove the funkiness and end up with a delicious savory product.
2. Slice the eggplant into quarter inch thick circles. Then take a colander and line it with paper towels. Sprinkle a little bit of salt on the paper. Now pick up our first slice of eggplant and sprinkle salt on both sides. Lay it down in colander. Pick up your second slice of eggplant and repeat salting method and lay on top of previous placed eggplant slice. Repeat this method, making layers of eggplant and salting in between each layer as you stack. Allow colander to sit in a sanitized sink for at least 30 minutes while eggplant is defunking.
3. While eggplant is defunking, preheat oven to 375°After 30 minutes, rinse your eggplant thoroughly, and cut the rounds into quarters. Now mix all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a large roasting pan. (Think turkey size.) Bake at 375°F until juices from vegetables have baked off and ratatouille has a thick consistency, about 90 – 120 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and cheese.
