Moroccan soup

The spring is hear but there is still a last change to post very wintery worming up soup before I will come back with more fresh and light spring ish recipes. After beautiful February here in Mallorca I paid a price by caching a cold in March. Last two days gave me zero hope for better so I was supporting myself with this tasty and fragrant soup. 



Ingredients:
  • 450 g sweet potato 
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 6 cloves of garlic 
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 jar of lentils 
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala 
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 6 cups chicken stock 
  • 100 g baby spinach 
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • lemon wedges for garnish

Preparation:
  1. Peal all your vegetables. Cut potato, carrots and pepper into 1 cm chunks.  
  2. To the big pot add olive oil. On a medium heat fry chopped onion and minced garlic with all the spices - coriander, curry, smoked paprika, turmeric, garam masala, nutmeg and optional cayenne pepper. Cause of this procedure you will get the best fragrance of the spices. 
  3. When all will look golden add vegetable - potato, carrots and paprika and cover with chicken stock.
  4. Cook for about 30 min - until all vegetable will get cooked and tender.
  5. Drain your lentils and add to the soup. 
  6. Place half of the soup in the smaller pot. By using a hand blender mix soup to the smooth liquid. Return the cream to the big pot. Cause of this you will get the nice texture and creaminess but you will still have nice chunks of veggies.
  7. Add the lemon juice and baby spinach. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  8. Serve it nicely hot. Bets with some fresh flat bread.
It's really true that the soup bring people to life and helps recover. It's also true that spicy food contain antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that protect against bacteria in the body. I have merged those two and ended up with another beautiful recipe for you. 

I hope you'll love it.
