Ingredients

  • 4 medium carrots, washed and peeled, chopped into small chunks
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 100 g red split lentils
  • 1 teaspoon organic Naturya Hemp protein
  • 1 teaspoon organic Naturya Mushroom Superblend
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala curry powder
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 700 ml vegetable stock
  • 2 TBSP coconut cream or plant-based yogurt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Naturya sun-dried goji berry
  • small handful off fresh parsley

Method

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the chopped onion and cook for about 8 minutes or until soft, stir occasionally. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic along with chopped carrots, stir for 3 minutes until the carrots browned slightly. 
  • Mix in garam masala and ground cumin. Stir well and cook for just one minute, any longer and the spices will burn. Pour in the vegetable stock, stir everything together then add the lentils and organic Mushroom Superblend. Stir well, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes. The soup is ready once the carrots are tender and the lentils are cooked. Before turning off the heat, add organic Naturya Hemp protein in the soup and mix well. 
  • Transfer the soup to a blender, blend until it is smooth.
  • Season to taste and top with coconut cream, chopped parsley and Naturya sun-dried goji berries. Serve with crusty sourdough bread.
