Portions : 6 | Preparation : 15 minutes | cooking : 8 am.


  • 2 cups dried green lentils
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 1-inch piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can 796 ml diced tomatoes
  • 8 cups unsalted vegetable broth (see Footnotes)
  • 2 tbsp. smoked red pepper
  • 1 C. Cumin
  • 1 C. ground cinnamon
  • 1 C. salt
  • 1 C. harissa paste (see Footnotes)
  • Pepper
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro


  1. Rinse and drain the lentils.
  2. Without peeling them, cut the carrots and ginger into thin slices. Chop the onion and garlic.
  3. In the slow cooker, combine the lentils, vegetables, broth, spices, and harissa. Pepper generously.
  4. Cover and cook for 8 hours on low.
  5. Ladle soup into six bowls, garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

It is stored for 4 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.


By using salt-free stock and adding salt to the recipe yourself, it will contain less sodium than if you used regular stock!

If you don’t have harissa paste, substitute ¼ tsp. ground cayenne pepper.
