Soups are one of my favorite things to meal prep!  I can make a huge pot on Sundays and have enough for our lunches throughout the week that will keep in the refrigerator.  This Moroccan Carrot Soup is the perfect work lunch for me – its light from the vegetables and spices, but also fills me up until dinner (so I don’t come home from work hangry)!

I normally prefer chunky soups to blended or pureed ones- but I used an immersion blender to give this soup a nice velvety consistency.  You can leave it totally chunky or blend it – up to you – but I would recommended giving this one a whirr in the blender.

This Moroccan Carrot Soup Recipe Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Perfectly Spiced
  • Hearty
  • Satisfying
  • Flavorful
  • Vegan, Gluten & Dairy Free, High in Protein!

The Best Immersion Blender for Soups

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix immersion blender is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my immersion blender for recipes like soup, as it’s much easier to manage than transferring all the ingredients to a stand blender. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a weekly basis!

Since you’ll blend this soup when you’re done making it, you don’t have to do a lot of precise chopping.  Just make sure the carrots are roughly the same size so they cook evenly, and the rest of the ingredients will puree just fine!

How Do You Make Carrot Soup with Lentils?

  1. In a Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over low heat.  Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 6-8 minutes until veggies become soft.  Add the turmeric, cumin, and coriander to the onion and garlic, and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  2. To the pot, add the carrots, diced tomatoes, lentils and vegetable stock.  Cook for 20 minutes, until the carrots begin to soften and the red lentils dissolve in the soup.
  3. Use an immersion blender, and blend the soup until it is thick and creamy.   Add garnishes: I used coconut milk, parsley, and sunflower seeds.
