Moroccan Lentil Soup

Green/Brown Lentils: These two types go great in soups. It takes 40 minutes maximum to cook, and it keeps its shape. It has a meaty texture and a mellow flavor.

Red Lentils: If you like creamy soups, this type might be what you’re looking for! It cooks fast but not keeping its shape. So add it in other soups or meals as a thickening agent or as a protein source. It won’t change the meal flavor.
