  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can of lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour + (2 tablespoons water)
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup coriander, chopped

Notes from Rouba

  • Adjust the lemon juice to your taste, adding more or less depending on how tangy you like it
  • To make this stew even heartier, try adding some chopped cooked chicken or tofu.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days or frozen for later.


Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and crushed garlic, and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onions are translucent.

Add the cauliflower florets and sauté for a few more minutes until the cauliflower is lightly browned. Pour in the 4 cups of water and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the cauliflower is soft and tender.


Add the drained and rinsed lentils to the pot and stir until well combined. In a small bowl mix together the cornflour and 2 tablespoons of water to create a paste. Add the paste to the soup and stir until it thickens slightly.

Let it cook for another 10 minutes until the lentils are heated through. Finally, add 3-4 tablespoons of lemon juice to the soup and stir well. Garnish with chopped coriander.

Serve with rice
