Recipe Notes

  • Caramelize tomato paste for less than a minute. This is a delicate process so make sure to be present and be ready to add fluids, otherwise it will give off a bitter taste.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Place a stock pot over medium heat and warm extra virgin olive oil. Cook the onions until fragrant. Add the garlic for a few minutes. Be mindful to not burn the garlic. Add celery and carrots and cook until semi-soft.
  2. Bloom Marrakech spice blend for 10 seconds and incorporate the tomato paste to caramelize for less than a minute. Add red lentils and water and/or stock.
  3. Season with salt and bring to boil. Turn the heat to low and softly simmer for 45 minutes until red lentils are completely soft. Adjust seasoning.
  4. Pour in your favorite bowls and garnish with cilantro and a squeeze of lemon.
