Spiced Moroccan Tomato & Red Lentil Soup

 In Recipes

This is a super easy but delicious soup recipe, perfect for a cold winters day.

You don’t have to soak the lentils over night if you forget, you could just rinse them thoroughly and soak for 10 minutes in boiling water.

This soup is freezer friendly too.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon:

  • Ground ginger
  • Ground coriander
  • Ground cumin
  • Paprika
