A North African-style mix of coriander, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne brought warm complexity in minutes as we bloomed them in the pot after sautéing an onion. Tomato paste and garlic completed the base before the addition of the lentils, and a mix of broth and water gave the soup a full, rounded character. After only 15 minutes of cooking, the lentils were soft enough to be pureed with a whisk. A generous dose of lemon juice brought the flavors into focus, and a drizzle of spice-infused oil and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro completed the transformation of commonplace ingredients into an exotic yet comforting, quick soup. You have to try this Red Lentil Soup with North African Spices by America’s Test Kitchen!
