How to make Detox Moroccan Lentil Soup
Step 1: In a large stockpot or dutch oven, heat the oil. Once hot, add the onions, celery, carrot, potato, and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the veggies are slightly tender. To taste, season with salt, pepper, and spices. Continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
Step 2: Toss in the lentils and saute for additional 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the broth, water, and tomato paste. Stir well until the tomato paste has dissolved. Bring everything to a boil. Once boiling, put the lid on and decrease the heat to a simmer. Let the soup simmer for about 30 minutes.
Step 3: Take the pot off the heat and whisk in the almond milk, lemon juice, and spinach. Add the spinach and stir until wilted.
Step 4: Serve the soup right away garnish with your favorite toppings such as a dollop of coconut yogurt, fresh parsley, pepper flakes, cracked pepper, and jalapeno slices. Enjoy!
You can also make this in a slow cooker. Simply add all the ingredients to your slow cooker, stir, and cook for 4 to 6 hours on low or 3 to 4 hours on high.
Or make this lentil soup in an Instant Pot. Saute the veggies first before adding the remaining ingredients. Set to cook for about 10 minutes on high. Once done, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes.
