Moroccan Red Lentil Soup

Moroccan Red Lentil Soup (from Fitness Blender)


  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cups red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 6 cups water or vegetable broth
  • Juice of 2 lemons


  1. In a large stockpot over medium heat, saute onion, garlic and carrot for 5 minutes, adding water as needed to prevent sticking.
  2. Stir in pepper, cumin, turmeric, paprika and ginger; cook another minute.
  3. Add water or vegetable broth and lentils; bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until lentils are fully cooked, 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove soup from heat, squeeze in the lemon juice and serve immediately. This soup is great over brown rice.
