  • 2 tsp lemon juice

  1. Heat hemp oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add spices and mushrooms. Continue to cook for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spices are fragrant and mushrooms release their juices. Add mushroom broth and lentils, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, until lentils have softened slightly.
  3. Transfer half of the soup to a blender along with the hemp seeds, and blend until smooth. Add back into the pot and stir. If you prefer a smooth soup, blend the entire mixture.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir through lemon juice, salt and pepper. Serve garnished with extra hemp oil, hemp seeds and fresh parsley. Enjoy hot.
