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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
