Preheat the oven to 425°F (to warm the pitas). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!


Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Rinse the lentils. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Roughly chop the cilantro.


Start the soup: Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, then the onion. Cook, stirring, until golden-brown, 6-7 min. Add the lentils, chickpeas, tomato passata, Moroccan seasoning, broth concentrates, 4 cups water and as much cayenne as you like. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are soft, 20-22 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Warm the pitas: Wrap the pitas in tin foil and place in the oven to warm for 4-5 min. (You can skip this step if you don't want to warm the pitas!


5 Finish and serve: Divide the soup between bowls. Sprinkle with the cilantro and dollop with sour cream. Serve with the pitas on the side. Enjoy!
