This Lebanese-inspired soup features hearty lentils simmered with aromatic spices and vegetables, garnished with a dollop of yoghurt and coriander microgreens for added flavour and nutrition.
Lentils provide protein and fibre, while the vegetables and spices offer vitamins and minerals. Yogurt adds probiotics. Microgreens add extra nutrients, making this soup not only comforting but also nutritious.
Chosen Microgreens: To enhance the flavour profile of this soup, use coriander microgreens. Coriander microgreens have a vibrant, citrusy flavour with hints of parsley. They are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as antioxidants, which support immune function and overall health.**
