Going to try the lentil/chickpea soup as I love them both, I'm thinking I might add some shredded chicken or beef to it.

Hi Maria, I don't know, it could be the sauteed onion and garlic, we make this soup all the time but don't remember what that could be.

It's most likely the lentils which can get either brown or green. Don't use the tiny French lentils (eh puy) they'll totally disappear in this soup.
