10 Reviews for Moroccan Lentil Soup

Substittued a lot bc my husband is hella difficult. Soup came out Epic.

I altered this recipe a lot bc 1: my husband hates onions and 2: Idk why the hell one day he bought broccoli. Broccoli is the one vegetable I can't stand and my husband doesn't cook. So we're in the kitchen...
me, "wtf? why do we have broccoli in our fridge?"
him, "ughh idk, i was going to try and cook it."
me,"it's been a week and its losing it's chlorophyll"
him,"could you cook it?"
me, "I hate broccoli, of all our years dating, married, when have I ever made broccoli?"
me,"don't sweat it. I gots this brah."

-Substitute onions for leeks
-Substitute cauliflower for broccoli and chopped it up in tiny 1" cubes, or smaller. Go smaller if you could. Broccoli is bitter IMO and I was anticipating it to mess up the soup, so chop that bad boy up so the broth can seep into its pores and conquer and armbar that broccoli taste.

-Diced tomatoes, I used canned fire-roasted. MUST Put the canned tomatoes in the last 30 mins or else youll over cook the flavor.
-Siracha, use about 1 tablespoon
-Dilute the broth. I used only 2 chicken boullion cubes
-I like sipping on the soup juices so I added an extra cup of water making it a total of 9c of water.
-Triple on the spices if you're going to dilute the broth. I promise you won't miss the broth.

Best slow cooker soup!

I've made a lot of slow cooker vegetarian soups and this is the best that I've made so far.

The soups has a wonderful flavor and keeps well in the freezer.
fantastic-- easy and satisfying

Have made this a few times. Am vegetarian and find this to be a hearty, filling soup. Non vegetarians love this also. Sometimes add vegan sausage to the soup the second day to give it more a kick.

Very good

Easy to make, tasted great, I love soups, so this is a keeper.

Very easy

Lovely recipe, easy to put together and versatile. Doubled the spices for even more flavor, but I did use water instead of chicken broth (thus the need for more spice to compensate). Served with rice which had the same spices as the soup. Added some sweet neem leaves - very good.

Really easy to put together with satisfying results.
