Hearty lentil soup gets a delicious hit of smoke from a chipotle sauce. This rich and creamy addition adds a bright finish to a bold combination of flavours. 


2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 - 15 oz (425 g) can lentils, drained and rinsed
4 cups (900 mL) low sodium vegetable stock
1 minced chipotle pepper, plus 1 tsp (5 mL) adobo
¼ cup (64 mL) Astro Original Balkan Plain 3% yogourt
Salt and pepper
Freshly snipped chives, for serving


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot and garlic, cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the lentils, minced chipotle pepper and stock, stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
  2. While the soup simmers, make the chipotle sauce by whisking together Astro Original yogourt with adobo and a pinch of salt. Season soup with salt and pepper. Divide between bowls and top with a dollop of chipotle sauce and a sprinkle of freshly snipped chives.
