Easy Moroccan Red Lentil & Carrot Soup.

Sunday, January 10, 2016

Original recipe from here.


I made a soup with red lentil (anything actually with red lentil) for the first time today and I choose a recipe for creme Moroccan red lentil & carrot soup as I tried similar recipe in one of the Barcelona restaurants and loved it.

This soup (if spicy peppers are not used) is perfect meal to warm you up on a cold Winter day! It's a very healthy choice for pregnant women like me and athletes like my boyfriend as it is packed with protein, vitamin A, beta carotene and fiber which helps pregnant women with digestion among other things. 

Since I like my cream soups a bit thicker I just made a meal out of it and ate it with small bowl of salad and whole wheat toast covered with olive oil salt & pepper. 

INGREDIENTS


2 soup spoons of olive oil
1 sweet onion (I used regular white onion)
3 cloves of garlic 
7 carrots
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon turmeric (I didn't use it)
2 teaspoon coriander
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups red lentils (rinse it very well, until water runs clear)
1-15 oz/ 1 small can of diced tomatoes
6 cups vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish: fresh cilantro & lemon juice.
Use crushed red pepper seeds to garnish or spicy ones to add a kick to your soup.

DIRECTIONS

Chop onions and mince garlic and sauté until soft. Add spices (cumin, turmeric, coriander, paprika and cinnamon) and sauté for few minutes and add chopped carrots for 8-10 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, vegetable broth and lentils and cook for 20 minutes or until lentils are soft. Add some vegetable broth or warm water if to thick. Use blender to mix and make a cream soup. Add a teaspoon of sour cream, fresh cilantro and lemon juice to garnish.

I made a lot of this soup so I froze a few portions to use for dinners when I don't feel like cooking. 
Let me know how you liked it if you try it! :)

Bon appetite! :)
