This thick soup is a wonderful comfort food. It's easy to make, delicious and healthy! I know the spices sound strange, but the end result is an excellent savory soup. Good enough for company!

    Added 1 tbsp of minced garlic and 1 tbsp of cayenne pepper. Left out the orzo and used corn flour instead of regular flour..... now the recipe is also gluten free!!

    This soup was easy to make and delicious. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable because that's what I had and I didn't use cilantro because I've never tried it and wasn't sure I would like it. I love all kinds of soup and I will definitely be making this again.

    This was filling and full of flavour! I loved every moment of it, especially since the temperature dipped a little and I needed something warm.

    Very satisfying, the flavors sold the lentils and chickpeas to DH (a proud carnivore) , who insisted that this become part of our regular rotation. This is a perfect lunch dish, high in protein and fiber. Reviewed for Veg'n Swap 13.
