Moroccan Lentil Soup with Raisins

This is such a warming, fragrant soup packed with all of the rich, intoxicating flavors of North African cuisine. You’ll want to make all winter long! It is very gentle for digestion as well. If you’d like to bump up the heartiness of it you can add chopped potatoes or beef/lamb/pork as well, just simmer longer.
Servings 6


  • 6 cups low sodium, high quality broth
  • 1 jar Mesa de Vida North African inspired healthy cooking sauce
  • 1/2-1 cup golden raisins, regular raisins, or diced dried apricots Optional
  • Salt to taste and hot sauce (Harissa is wonderful for this), optional


  • Bring all of the ingredients to a simmer in a soup pot or Dutch oven, lower heat to low and cover. Cook for 30 minutes until the lentils are tender and begin to thicken a bit. *Or cook in an electric pressure cooker for 10 minutes.
