Lentil and Chickpea Soup

Inspired by the Arabic cuisine, this warming, and thick soup is very appropriate for cold weather. That’s why we spice it using caraway, cloves, and paprika. Preparing it is an easy task: we needed only 25 minutes. You can increase the creaminess factor by serving it with yogurt to taste.

¾ cup canned tomatoes
⅓ cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons of yogurt for serving
