Health Rating


1 medium White onion (chopped)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/2 tsp Cumin (ground)
1/2 tsp Turmeric, powder (ground)
1/2 tsp minced Ginger root
1/3 tsp Cardamom, ground (ground)
1 1/2 cup Broccoli, raw
1/2 cup Red lentils, raw
5 leaf Mint, fresh (5-10 (optional))
1 bunch Cilantro (coriander) (optional)
1 tsp, minced Red chili pepper (also chile or chilli) (to taste, optional)
2 tbsp Avocado oil


  1. Soak lentils for 30min-1h. Prepare the rest - peel garlic and onion, wash herbs and vegetables and chop broccoli, onion, chili (optional), cilantro (optional), mint leaves.
  2. In a small cooking pot add 1tbsp olive oil and sautee the garlic and onions at medium-high for about 1 min. Add the spices (turmeric, ginger, cumin and opt. cardamom). Stir and add "a sip" of water, so that the spices don't burn.
  3. Stir again and add chopped broccoli, lentils, 1/2 tsp salt (approx. I'm still struggling with measuring salt, I usually pinch) and 2-3 cups of water (so that everything is covered).
  4. Cover everything with the lid and cook for 8-10 min until lentils are tender and everything else is cooked.
  5. Add the herbs (mint and optionally cilantro). Take off heat.
  6. With your handblender blend the soup. I didn't blend all the way through as I like soups chunky. If you'd like - blend all the way through until smooth (won't affect taste, just texture). Add 1 more tbsp olive oil and stir in. Salt to taste, add water if too thick (shouldn't be).
  7. Optionally: Slice red chilli pepper and add at the end.
  8. Serve hot and if you'd like top with some hot paprika flakes and cumin.
