Bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour.) Drain when ready to use. 2. Combine the soaked chickpeas, squash, carrots, onion, lentils, broth, tomato paste, ginger, cumin, salt, saffron and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker. 3. Put on the lid and cook on low until the chickpeas are tender and the lentils have begun to break down, 5 to 6 1/2 hours. 4. Stir in lime juice. Serve sprinkled with peanuts and cilantro. Tips & Notes * Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. * Notes: Kabocha is a squash with a green-streaked rind and tender, sweet orange flesh. An average kabocha weighs two to three pounds. * Considered the world's most expensive spice, saffron contributes a pungent flavor and intense yellow color. It is sold in threads and powdered form.

Very Green Lentil Soup Recipe by Anna Thomas, eatingwell: Lentils seem to go with just about anything, and here they play well with a collection of greens and some cumin and coriander to add a gentle spicy note to this soup recipe. The result is a hearty winter soup with layers of flavor. Try green lentils which hold their shape better when cooked than the brown ones. #Soup #Lentil #Healthy
