HFG tip

If you can’t find lemon thyme, use regular thyme instead. You could swap the pumpkin for butternut squash, if you like.

    The protein per serve of this recipe doesn’t look right to me. The only substantial protein ingredient is the red lentils – and at 18gm protein per cup , this would provide approx 3gm of protein per serve of soup. Please let me know if I’m missing something here. Perhaps you have overall nutritional value here, rather than per serve?

      Hi there
      Thanks for your question. The protein mostly comes from the red lentils, yoghurt and pumpkin. 1 cup dried red lentils has significantly more protein than 1 cup cooked lentils – around 44g. With the protein from the lentils, pumpkin and yoghurt and other ingredients combined, we get the total per serve that’s shown in the NIPs panel.

      Warm regards
