Wash produce before use
Soak the goji berries
While the berries soak, prepare the vegetables and start the soup.
Prep the vegetables
- Peel and thinly slice the shallots.
- Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots into ¼-inch-thick slices.
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Rinse the lentils.
- Set aside about two-thirds of the arugula for the soup; save the rest for garnish.
Cook the soup
Add the lentils, vegetable broth, two-thirds of the arugula, and 3 cups [5 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook until the lentils are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
When the soup is almost done, prepare the naan.
Toast the naan
- Scrub the carrots.
- Measure the ginger.
- Divide the arugula.
- Measure the water for the soup.
- Garnish the soup.
