Chicken & Lentil Soup

A great take on classic chicken soup. A hearty, lightly spiced soup loaded with vegetables and goodness. The base recipe is yours to interpret by adding your own vegetable choice. Also, try our Moroccan paste to change up the flavour profile.

  • 1 Onion
  • 4 Cloves Garlic (crushed)
  • 2 Carrots
  • 4 Stalks Celery
  • 1 Leek
  • 6 cups water or chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup Red Lentils
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Man Grind
  • 3 tbsp Goan To Bombay
  • 2 tbsp Fry-Yay



Pour oil into a pot or dish and place onto medium heat.


Dice onion, carrot, leek and saute with garlic & Goan To Bombay.


Add in chicken and slightly brown.


Add your stock and let simmer slightly.


Once simmering, add your lentils.
