If you're on the lookout for a vegetarian main dish that's rich in protein and in flavor, you've come to the right place. This recipe combines chickpeas and two kinds of lentils in an Indian-inspired soup with just the right hint of spice. And it doesn't even take long to make.
The inspiration from this soup comes from Indian dal, a dish of stewed lentils that's generally served a bit thicker than soup. Feel free to add the amount of vegetable broth that achieves the texture you crave. A thicker soup may feel a bit heartier, but a brothier soup is just as delicious. If you're not vegan, you can serve a dollop of yogurt on top.
