Step by Step

  • Soak lentils for 30-60 min. prepare the rest - peel garlic and onion, wash herbs and vegetables and chop broccoli, onion, red chili pepper (optional), cilantro, mint leaves, and cut turkey breast into small pieces. 

  • In a small cooking pot add half of the olive oil and sautee the minced garlic and onion at medium-high heat for about 1 min. Add turmeric, ginger, cumin, red pepper flakes and cardamom. Stir and add "a sip" of water, so that the spices don't burn.

  • Stir again and add chopped broccoli, lentils, a pinch of salt, ground black pepper, and about 2 cups of water (so that everything is covered). 

  • Add turkey pieces. 

  • Cover everything with the lid and cook for 15-30 min until lentils are tender and everything else is cooked.

  • Add mint and cilantro. Turn off the heat. 

  • If you like creamy soups blend the soup with a hand blender all the way through until smooth. Stir in the remaining olive oil. season with a pinch of salt, and pour some boiling water if too thick. Add chopped red chili pepper at the end (optional).
