  3. Then add garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes, stirring on occasion.
  4. Add the water, bouillon cube, potatoes, and spices, and stir.
  5. Partially cover with a lid, bring to boil, reduce to a simmer, cooking for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the drained lentils, carrots, zucchini, and soy sauce. Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer with the lid partially covered for 10 minutes.

I've made this recipe plenty of times, my ultimate fave! The ingredients list doesn't show the amount for soy sauce :)
