Ingredients:

2 cups green lentils, cooked½ cup tomato paste½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil2 ½ vegetable stock¼ teaspoon ground coriander
1 large yellow onion, diced small3 teaspoon ground cumin¼ teaspoon turmeric
2 cloves garlic, minced1 teaspoon paprika1/8 teaspoon ground all spice
2 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated½ teaspoon ground anise seed1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 carrots, diced – do not peel!½ teaspoon dried thyme1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
10 hot house tomatoes, diced½ teaspoon whole mustard seedcayenne pepper to garnish

Directions

  1. Soften up a few ingredients and really bring out the tastes by sautéing them. In a large pot, melt your oil and add in your garlic, onion, ginger and carrots. Moving around constantly to avoid burning, for roughly 5 minutes.
  2. In the same pot, add in your remaining soup ingredients. For best results, bring everything to a light boil, then cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Portion out into bowls and serve – yes, it was that easy!

Make It This Way

If you’re in a bind and don’t have enough fresh tomatoes you can easily use stewed canned tomatoes instead.

If you prefer, you could always use split peas instead of lentils. The choice is yours!

Bring out the flavors even more with some smoked paprika instead of regular.

For added heat, top with some cayenne pepper, and parsley – just because it’s so pretty and fresh!

Try This

Make this soup ahead of time and freeze. That way you’ll always have something quick to grab if you’re in a hurry. To ensure they don’t get too mushy, we recommend just leaving out the lentils and making them fresh when you go to enjoy your soup.
