This soup is bland and boring. I think it might benefit from more salt and fat.
Slow-Cooker Moroccan Lentil Soup
From EatingWell: January/February 2013
Like most soups, this Moroccan lentil soup recipe gets better with time as the complex seasonings have time to develop. Make it a day ahead if you can—this easy slow cooker/crock pot recipe variation makes it a cinch to get the soup cooking while you do other things.

I made this again with fewer carrots and cauliflower, and left out the tomato paste and cinnamon. I doubled the cumin, and put in 12+ cloves of garlic. Served with a dollop of sour cream and some jalapenos and it was delicious. Somewhat reminiscent of the spices in the braised pork and salsa, another Eating Well favorite of ours.
Upon reviewing the list of ingredients and measurements, I knew immediately that this recipe would require triple the seasoning. One teaspoon of cumin will do nothing for 1 3/4 cups of lentils! After adjusting the seasoning, the final product was yummy and well-received by my family.
Will make this again. We roasted the cauliflower and added it as a topping instead of cooking with the soup. Soaked the lentils in hot water for 10 minutes and rinsed before adding to the slow cooker.
although I soaked the lentils for 4 hrs prior to starting the crockpot the lentils remained crunchy after 18 hrs! I had to simmer the soup for 45min on the stove, then the lentils were cooked. It tasted great when finally finished
