Moroccan Carrot Lentil Soup (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This healthy and vibrant carrot lentil soup features brilliant spices, fresh vegetables, and plant protein.  Carrots give this soup a creamy texture, and the lentils make it filling enough for a whole meal.  Perfect for meal prep, batch cooking, and making ahead!

Soups are one of my favorite things to meal prep!  I can make a huge pot on Sundays and have enough for 5 lunches throughout the week that will keep in the refrigerator.  This Detox Moroccan Carrot & Lentil 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 call this a ‘detox’ soup because (like most of my recipes) it only contains healthy whole plant-based foods and spices.  What could be more perfect for you than that?

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 soup has such a deep beautiful color from the carrots, turmeric, tomatoes, and red lentils.  Color = nutrients, and this soup certainly has ‘em.

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!

Instructions
 

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You can leave the soup as is and eat it chunky, or blend to a soft creamy base.   Add the parsley, and salt and pepper if desired.
