This was very good. I didn't have lentil soup, so I just cooked up some lentils with veg broth powder. I like thicker stews, so increased chickpeas and currants, and drained most of the broth from the lentils. Flavor was great.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, minced (1 tbsp)
- 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
- 2 (18 1/4 ounce) cartons lentil soup, such as Dr. McDougalls
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 1⁄2 cup raisins or 1⁄2 cup dried currant
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (to taste)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1⁄4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (to taste)
- 6 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt or 6 tablespoons plain nonfat soy yogurt
Directions See How It's Made
- Heat oil in medium saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 minutes, or until softened and translucent. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute, or until garlic is softened, but not browned, stirring constantly.
- Stir in tomatoes, soup, chickpeas, raisins, cinnamon, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Bring stew to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, or until mixture is reduced and sauce has thickened, stirring often from bottom to prevent sticking. Garnish each serving with one tablespoon yogurt.
