  • 2 baking potatoes peeled and chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 18.2 ounces Dr. McDougall Lentil Soup 1 carton
  • 15 ounces crushed tomatoes
  • 15 ounces chickpeas. rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

Garnish (optional)

  • ¼ cup vegan plain yogurt
  • Additional cinnamon
  • 10 mint leaves


  • In a soup pot, saute garlic, onions, and spices until onions are translucent.
  • If the onions and garlic begin to stick, add a small amount of water to the vegetable broth.
  • Cook until the spices are combined and absorbed into the onions.
  • Now, add the crushed tomatoes, chickpeas, carrots, and potatoes.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Add the vegetable, stir, and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Next, reduce to simmer and cook uncovered for 30 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots soften.

Not only is this soup easy to make, but it also freezes well, if indeed it lasts that long. 
For those who like it a little spicy, serve with red pepper flakes on the side.
