What I Ate: Vegan North African Soup

OK, ok, this started out vegan but then I added yogurt and a cream swirl.  And a grilled cheese sandwich.  This soup is a North African soup with lentils, potatoes, carrots, ginger, onions, and garbanzo beans as the main ingredients.  Saute onions in oil.  Add carrots, ginger, celery, garlic, spices of your choice.  Then add vegetable broth, 1 peeled and chopped potato and 1/2 cup of lentils.  After about 20 minutes, add garbanzos.  Cook until potatoes are done.  Garnish with cilantro and yogurt.

It was supposed to be more stew like but I gave it a whirl with the immersion blender.   It's like your whole day's worth of veggies in one bowl of soup!
